Katy  -  November 2, 2014 (Sunday)

Texas10 Katy has one of the fastest, flatest courses in the south.  The City of Katy is surrounded by the major metropolitan of Houston and is along the energy corridor.  As the next to the last stop on the Texas 10 Series "Race To The Armadillo Cup", runners are sure to score some crucial points in their quest for the ARMADILLO CUP, on the streets of Katy.  As a 12-point race, the always popular post race cash prize give away and clubs vying for valuable points in their quest to be crowned TEN GALLON CUP champions, we are sure to see a full field at Texas10 Katy.  

Let us welcome you to Katy – a City with a heart.  “You’ll Love Katy” – the ideal place to Live, Work, and Play.  This is depicted by the welcome sign as you enter our city.  We want you to feel welcome the minute you come to our community.

We strive to keep the “Old Town” heritage alive and at the same time welcome new ideas, businesses, and families to share in the traditions as well as contribute to the new and exciting things that are available in our City.  The benefit of living in Katy is the convenience of being surrounded by the major metropolitan of Houston.  The Katy Mall brings many opportunities to the area.

Our City provides you with a community spirit, safe neighborhoods, and excellent schools.  You can visit the Harvest Plaza that is dedicated to the rice farming community.  Other areas of interest include the Katy Heritage Museum and Park, a new library, and the unique shops of “downtown Katy”.

“You’ll Love Katy” says it all.  Again, welcome – come and see us soon!

THINGS TO DO

1) Katy Mills Mall

Katy Mills, a climate controlled indoor shopping mall is home to over 175 stores featuring a high-fashion line-up which includes Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, Kenneth Cole, Cole Haan, Forever 21 and many more. In addition to the top fashion names, Katy Mills also includes many exciting dining options from a sit down restaurant such as Rainforest Café to grab and go eateries Great Wraps and Charley’s Grilled Subs are among the many Food Court choices.

2) No Label Brewing Co.

No Label Brewing Co. truly began one sunny Saturday afternoon in the spring of 2009. The Royo family was sitting on the back porch enjoying some of Brian’s homebrew. After many pints, the conversation turned to the possibility of opening our own brewery. Although none of us had any experience running a brewery, we decided to give it a try.

3) Katy Heritage Museum

We open our historic homes at Katy Heritage Park free to the public, we also operate the MKT museum in the old Depot. We own our homes and are responsible for all maintenance and the operation of our facilities. We also distribute educational literature and newsletters, take outreach programs into schools and private groups and have many working projects to protect and preserve the historic resources of the Katy area for the use, education, enjoyment and economic benefit of present and future generations.

4) Houston Astros

The Houston Astros have always had the ability to call our home ballpark a magnificent piece of architecture. After moving from the "8th Wonder of the World", the Astrodome, into our new facility in 2000, that ability has not been lost. Minute Maid Park was opened with baseball's first retractable roof and has truly become a home for Astros baseball and our fans over 10 seasons. Situated in downtown Houston, the ballpark has become the focal point of Houston's image, hosting more than just baseball throughout the year. Boasting a seating capacity of more than 40,000, it strives to connect the new Houston with the cherished traditions and roots of Houston and baseball as a whole.
