Wednesday, September 9, 2009 • Posted September 9, 2009

At 8:00 a.m., on Saturday October 3, 2009, the Mason Lion’s Club’s 3rd Annual Gem of the Hill Country 5 & 10k Run/Walk will take place. Starting on the south side of the Mason County Courthouse next to the old Jail, participants will wend their way around the south side of town on a course which includes hill and dale, and one of the most beautiful scenic views in the hill country.

The Lions Club is proud of their race and well they should be. Proceeds help many of Mason’s non-profit organizations and the race is drawing racers, runners and walkers from towns throughout the hill country not to mention the ever increasing attendance of fitness-minded Mason folk.

So…, come on out! Participate or volunteer. The Lion’s Club’s Hill Country 5 & 10k Run/Walk promotes health, good causes, and, it promotes Mason. What more can you ask for in an event?

For 5 & 10k race registration forms and/or information on the event, call or email Eva Tannehill at 325-347-1518,; contact the Mason Chamber of Commerce at 325-347-5758 ( or email,

Below is a map of the course. Please be careful of the runners and walkers. And, say “howdy” as you pass. They’d love to have your support.
