The whole world seems to be looking for flat and fast courses... so much that running has become boring.
Well, folks, this is not it. This is a challenge. The kind that takes your mind off the running and focuses on the experience. 13.1 beautiful miles, running through the award winning Cameron Park Zoo, Cameron Park hills, Methodist Childrens Home, and McLennan Community College. If you're really brave (or stupid?), tackle the Jacob's Ladder Challenge at Mile 11. We do give you a gentle last 2 miles flat along the river. You're welcome.
This boutique race offers so much more than the cookie cutter big city races. Even the finisher medal is unique, custom made by a local firefighter who donated stem cells through "Be the Match", not a factory made medal. Take on the Miracle Match Half Marathon and earn a custom finisher jacket, fajitas, and beer at the finish line. It's party celebrating YOU!
Did we scare you? Are you not quite ready for the hills or the distance? We offer a 1 Mile and 5K on Saturday, a 10K and the two person relay on Sunday, which allows you to enjoy the finish line party and your custom finisher medal as well! We even have a Firetruck Pull, just to entertain ourselves.
Join us January 25th and 26th at Waco's iconic suspension bridge for an experience you will never forget!
