My Best Runs Comments

Bob Anderson
They say they do everything big in Texas, and this race lives up to that reputation. I've heard many great things about this race.
Kat Powell
Wanted to qualify for Boston, but was not ready to meet the challenge. The concrete was hard on my body and the cold beer at mile 20 was more appealing than a Boston Qualifier at the time. I am sure this flat marathon appeals to those conditioned athletes looking for a PR or Boston qualifier.

Chevron Houston Marathon

The Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon use a single start line for both races. The start features four corrals with the first corral starting at 7:01 a.m. Corrals B and C will follow the A Corral using a pulsed start method – three minute time intervals separating the corrals – to reduce course congestion. Corral D will follow immediately after the C corral with no pulsed intervals. Corral assignments are determined by the predicted finish time of each runner indicated during registration. Corral A seeding is by request only, and the deadline to submit a qualifying time is November 30, 2018.
