Texas' Largest Independence Day-Themed Races - 2015

In doing a review of last year's Independence Day-themed races around Texas, I was a little surprised that there weren't many, many more than what is listed below.

A couple of races - such as one in Stephenville, for example - I couldn't locate results for; however, I don't think that they would have affected the top ten races.

The largest number of finishers in any race at a single distance goes to the Baytown Bud Heatwave 5-miler as they set an all-time high for their race.  In fact, three of the largest races in Texas are in the greater Houston area.

The largest event with the most number of official timed finishers is the 30th annual Liberty By The Lake 5K with a combined number of 981 with both their 10K and 5K.

Just a few weeks when we find out who the new King in Texas is.
