Decker Challenge Half Marathon
The Austin Runners Club invites you to accept the Decker Challenge! Are you ready to tackle a tough hill at the ten mile mark of a Half Marathon? The Decker Challenge Half Marathon covers an out-and-back loop on a hilly course through the Austin area countryside and around Decker Lake. The event starts and finishes at the Travis County Expo Center.
The Decker Challenge course is USATF certified and covers 13.1 miles of rural roadway on and surrounding the Travis County Expo Center grounds. 'Challenge' is in this Half Marathon's title for a reason - there are rolling hills for the first half of the race, followed by several steady downhill miles at miles 7 and 8. The final 5 are tough: large hills at the end of Mile 8 and Mile 10.
