The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is just around the corner, and that means it's time for the Rodeo Run.

Five hundred people signed up for early registration Saturday at the H-E-B on Bunker Hill in west Houston.

The 10-K race and 5-K fun run will take place on February 25.

It's not all hard work. There's also a party, costume contests and live music for the run's 25th anniversary.

Those who didn't register Saturday can register online at www.conocophillipsrodeorun.com for $30. You can also register at the event.

About 15,000 people are expected to participate.

The Rodeo Run has raised nearly $3 million for the rodeo's scholarship fund.
