There’s no better way to start your New Year’s resolution than by challenging yourself for a 5K, half-marathon, five-person relay marathon or USATF-certified full marathon! Starting at the McAllen Convention Center, join thousands of others to venture through the city where the average year-round temperature is 75 degrees!

Race Details

The racecourses are flat and fast with a South Texas breeze and asphalt routes that will cruise through shady McAllen neighborhoods with all of the support needed to get you across the finish line! This includes ample water stations, restroom facilities and first-aid stations. Route information can be found here.
