The Bryan-College Station Marathon and half-marathon will take place this holiday season on Dec. 10. This race, which is currently the highest rated marathon in the state of Texas, will kick off bright and early at 7 a.m.

The course will start and end at Wolf Creek Park. The race, whose title sponsor is Baylor Scott and White, is USAT+F certified, and it is also a Boston Marathon qualifying race.

In less than a month, you could be on the way towards accomplishing something great. This event is put on to help promote the wellbeing of all of those within BCS city limits. Whether you’re a runner who wants to help themselves by increasing their health and mobility or just an individual who wants to give back to their community and a greater cause, this race is here for you!

The BCS Marathon is a great way to explore the local area and to experience the Aggie spirit, with an awesome opportunity to run all throughout the campus. The course is very flat and goes through neighborhoods, beautiful golf courses, and TAMU campus.

There will be stations posted up every 1.5 miles that will include both water and Gatorade, and some will even have gel, brownies, and candy.

You can follow along on Facebook the official marathon page to receive daily updates, discounted deals, and have the opportunity to connect with a local group of like-minded individuals who are all preparing for the same thing this coming December.

Don’t fret if you don’t have either the time, energy, or willpower this Christmas season. The BCS Marathon Series will continue to host events in the area!

The BCS Marathon team is known for hosting quality races year-round that benefit and give back to the community and others.

This group is here in hopes of helping to bring together the community. The race is being organized by Mercy Project and a marathon committee completely made up of volunteers who both support and love the local running community.

The Mercy Project is a group working to eradicate child slavery in Ghana, a country in Western Africa. It is estimated that over 7,000 children in just that area are forced into child labor.

The marathon website states that this race will feel like a big city marathon, however without the massive crowds and ridiculous prices.

Each runner is also in for a well-deserved treat once they cross the finish line. Along with the participation shirt that everyone receives, race finishers will receive a finisher’s jacket and a custom medal. An awesome post-race party featuring lots of food, beer,and fun will follow the race.
