go to:

Baytown Special Rodeo Association
The mission of the Baytown Special Rodeo Association is to provide an annual fun filled, western themed day of activities and entertainment for mentally and/or physically challenged children and their families. We strive to instill in each child a sense of community and the belief that they are special and important.

Do not run this race if you are unprepared. The combined heat and humidity on the 4th of July in Baytown makes the Baytown Bud Heat Wave a very strenuous and taxing race. Entrants should only seek participation in this event if they are well conditioned and cautious in their race strategy.

*One of the top female finishers from the very first run, 1979, sent us this slate of the inaugural top 10 finishers. How cool is that?
