USA Fit Marathon and Half Marathon
Come on out and celebrate the Memorial Hermann USA Fit Marathon, Half Marathon, and Family Friendly 5K. Welcome the marathon season with one of the best routes and post race parties you have ever been to! Whether you are a Boston Qualifier or an 8 hour finisher, you will have a heck of a good time after you cross the finish line! Celebrate the day at the post race party BBQ, which features some healthy food too!
The route takes you from the University of Houston Campus into the beautiful tree-lined subdivisions of Avalon and Telfair. Race participants will have a full lane reserved for their travels and be able to look across the median to cheer on other participants. This route offers easy access for spectators with several vantage points for viewing the race. The Marathon is USATF Certified, and the Half Marathon is USATF Certified as well.
The Half Marathon participants will make one loop of the course and turn toward the finish line as the Marathon participants begin a second loop. Participants will line up according to pace with faster runners in front and walkers behind. Humana Vitality 5K participants will start after the Marathon/Half and follow 3.1 miles of the marathon course.
