Looks like it may bring in some visitors during the first weekend in May.

On May 4, 2019, the inaugural CForce Chuck Norris 5K is offering Chuck Norris fans the experience of a lifetime, and attempting to break a world record in the process. The race is hoping to set the record for the most people dressed as Chuck Norris at one time.

You're encouraged to create your own Chuck Norris costume. Prizes will be awarded for best male, female, and kid's costume to do so, but if you're lacking on Norris gear, that's no reason to skip out: With registration, you'll get a "Chuck style t-shirt, a fake beard, and an awesome belt buckle," according to the race website, so you'll fit right in.

Additionally, the race will donate all proceeds to Kickstart Kids, an organization founded by Norris to help build students' character development through martial arts, and the Mercy Project, a nonprofit working to end child slavery in Ghana, Africa.

Early race registration for participants starts at $30 for adults and $25 for kids, and superfans can even purchase a VIP package that includes breakfast with Norris to fuel up before the race. As of publication, participants from 16 different states have already registered, a BCS Marathon race director told Runner's World .

The race will take place in College Station, Texas, but the official course is still in the works.
Apparently 1,000 people signed up after the story ran in Newsweek earlier this week - https://www.newsweek.com/chuck-norris-host-5k-race-could-set-chuck-norris-look-world-record-1299533

We're a good spot in the state for stuff like this, and we've got the hotel space for it. Hope to see more in the future.
No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!

I'm thinking with a 5K and that many people you are going to need to add a chute at the end that lines people up single file with Chuck standing at end of chute to be able to high five everyone... gonna be lots of people finishing at same at only 5K distance.

but I'm sure you guys are way of ahead of me with probably a better idea.
