Join us at 7:00am on December 11, 2016 for year 6 of what is currently the highest rated marathon in the state of Texas (marathonguide.com). You’ll have the opportunity to explore the Bryan/College Station community as well as experience the Aggie spirit while you run throughout the Texas A&M campus.
The race courses are primarily flat and fast, and the route includes plenty of shady neighborhoods, several golf courses, and enough crowd support to help you get to the finish for your first time or your fastest time. The marathon course has a few rolling hills miles 11 – 13, but is otherwise flat. The marathon course is USAT&F certified and a Boston Marathon qualifying race.
We also offer a marathon relay. Click here for more information.
Updated maps will be posted in Fall 2016, however we do not anticipate any significant changes from 2015
Aid stations will be every 1.5 miles and include both water and lemon-lime Gatorade, and every fourth Aid Station will also have fuel including gel, candy, and brownies. Port-a-Potties are at approximately every 3 miles along the courses.
Course Time Limit
The time limit for completing the marathon is six and a half hours. The course closes on a rolling schedule based on a 15:00 per mile pace (6 hours and 30 minutes total) for both the half and full marathons. The half marathon converges with the full marathon around mile 8, which allows half marathoners extra time to complete the race after that point.
Everyone will receive a participant shirt and all race finishers will receive a technical fabric finisher’s shirt and custom finisher’s medal. There will also be a “bonus” item for every runner that we will announce closer to race day. You can also expect a post race party with a food and beer spread that rivals any large marathon in Texas!
Packet pick-up and expo will be held Saturday, December 10th.
See you on December 11th!
