Marathon’s

It seems that nearly every weekend or every other weekend there are road closures and detour signs as a result of a marathon.

Austin hosts a huge number of marathons every year of a myriad of reasons, supporting diseases, illness and a variety of non-profits.

Upcoming Austin marathons includeThe 18th Annual ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot and the Trail of Lights 5k.

Hosting marathons, half marathons and triathlons can pack a powerful economic punch for cities. As well as benefit those who run them by providing:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved health
  • A sense of accomplishment
  • Increased discipline
  • Quality time outdoors

There are many running groups in Austin. “Austin Fit is one of those groups… it’s designed for folks like us who aren’t at all worried about winning…Austin Fit, offers a training program to get runners and walkers of all levels ready for the 3M and Freescale half marathons or the Freescale full marathon.” According to an Austinist.com article.

To get more information on running marathon’s or just for fun visit Run Tex or Austin TX running Clubs.

    Can I just say what a relief to discover somebody who truly understands what they are talking about on the internet.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More and more people have to read this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you’re
    not more popular given that you most certainly have the
    gift.
