I attended and ran in the 2012 Pickle Palooza with a couple of friends and family members. I didn't realize at the time that it was the very first run! The event was well organized and family friendly. My only suggestion would be for it to start earlier in the day so that it's cooler out, but March in Texas is always a gamble anyway! I will do it again this year!
