Chevron Houston Marathon
Marathons are occasions that highlight the spirit and pride of a city. The Chevron Houston Marathon is no exception. On Sunday, January 17, at least 13,000 runners will descend on the city to run the 26-mile course. The course is flat—a boon to runners, of course—and, nicely enough, passes through some of the most lovely and scenic sights in Houston on a widely acclaimed course.
Like all marathons, though, it isn’t only the runners who make the event—important as they are. One quarter of a million people are expected to line the course as spectators and supporters. Some will just hold signs and cheer; others will hand out Gatorade to thirsty runners. There will also be entertainment! There will be rock bands, Elvis impersonators, marching bands, cheerleaders and more.
More importantly, the Houston Chevron Marathon is a source for charitable giving, with Run for a Reason official charities and Sidewalk Squad donors. So, where do you join the fun if you’re not already in the race? The Marathon’s official Web site lists all the spectator sites; they include the start, at The George R. Brown Convention Center; several miles along Kirby; the 10-mile area at University Boulevard and the City of West University Place; the halfway point at Westpark and Post Oak; and Memorial Park (where the runners hit an infamous wall at the 20-mile mark).
