The “Legend of the Port-o-Potty”:
Our good friends at United Site Services will be out with port-o-potties BEFORE the race this year
We all make mistakes and they are eager to correct their wrong from last year.
There will be potties at the start/finish line and on course this year too to give the trees & shrubs a break.
We are excited to offer what we believe to be one of the most scenic running courses that takes in the best that San Antonio has to offer; showcasing the cultural icons that reflect the wonder of our fine community.
From the boom of the historic cannon at The Alamo down intimate Crockett Street over to historic Houston Street, you’ll be treated to some amazing views as you head up to Dignowity Hill Park and across the classic Hays Street Pedestrian Bridge with its magnificent vista of downtown San Antonio. Next up is another famous brewery that has become the San Antonio Art Museum and then over through the heart of Pearl and past Brackenridge Golf Course, the site of so many famous tournaments. Dissecting the Park you’ll then need to use that Hill Repeat training to scale gorgeous Trinity University’s campus. Once around TU, you’re heading back to jump onto the sweet new Museum Reach of the River Walk and past the soon to be fabulous Tobin Center for Performing Arts and back to a cascade of applause down the cobblestones at The Alamo Finish.
RELAY folks will be shuttled from The Alamo to the 1/2 way point at Trinity University. Your running partner once
completing their first half section will be graciously returned to The Alamo via our Race Shuttle.
RELAY runners will cross the 1/2 way point timing mat and then simply tag their running partner. Both will have the same numbered race bibs with timing chips on the back of the bib.
Each runner in the relay will run approximately 6.55 miles.
We’ll have plenty of Aid Stations every 1-1.5 miles stocked with plenty of water & gatorade to replenish you and some energy snacks too.
Course Time Limits: You will have plenty of time to complete the course with a 4 HOUR TIME LIMIT. This is an easy 18 min. mile pace.
