** 3/21/20- Race Postponed **

Hello fantastic runners/walkers/ cyclists! This is an unprecedented time in our nation in light of the continuing spread of COVID-19. Governor Abbott declared a state of disaster in Texas on March 13, 2020. We are monitoring the situation and following guidance from the CDC and state and city officials. Your health and safety are our number one priority. At this time, we feel the best decision is to postpone the 9th Annual Tour de Castroville. We are looking at possible dates in early fall to reschedule but we also want to be cautious and see how the situation develops in the coming weeks before announcing a new date. We will keep in touch and follow up with more information as we know more. Rest assured, we are committed to providing a great event for you to enjoy in our precious little town.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we know there will be many questions that we will look to answer in the coming days. Please contact Arnold Dollase with questions adollase@att.net.

** Thank you for your understanding and stay safe **

The Tour de Castroville Walk/Run/Ride is a family event held annually at the Castroville Regional Park located fifteen miles west of San Antonio. The 5K and 10K Walk and Run routes take participants through historical Castroville, founded by Henri Castro in 1844. 

Known as "The Little Alsace of Texas", Castroville has maintained its Alsatian heritage while assimilating the flair of the American rural west. The 30 and 60 mile bicycle routes run throughout picturesque Medina County on low traffic roads connecting Castroville to neighboring LaCoste and in western Bexar County.

Registration proceeds benefit Parks and Recreation and the beatification of Castroville.
