ABOUT THE RACE
The Woodlands Marathon is a BOSTON QUALIFIER, the fastest course in Texas on average and one the top 25th fastest courses in the country . It qualifies close to 11% of its registered runners in the marathon for the Boston Marathon. The marathon, half marathon, 5k, relay and 2k Fun Run traverse the streets of Town Center and the community on a pretty flat course, finishing on the scenic The Woodlands Waterway.
Friends, family and spectators line the streets at various cheer zones in the Cheer Challenge to encourage athletes along the way, and participants have the opportunity to run for charities in the Charity Challenge. To date, over $650,000 has been raised for charities and volunteer organizations. Come join the excitement as we welcome close to 9,000 runners.
