The Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Sports Medicine Institute EXPO is home to Packet Pick-Up for all Chevron Houston Marathon, Aramco Houston Half Marathon, ABB 5K, Run for a Reason, and Bank of Texas Team Challenge participants.
The 2014 Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon will have a protected cap of 25,000 participants. Of the 25,000 entries, 13,000 entries are reserved for the marathon and 12,000 for the half marathon fields.
The time limit for completing the half marathon is four hours. In order to complete the race faster than the roads are being re-opened to vehicular traffic, all half marathon participants must be able to maintain a pace of 13:45 per mile or faster over the first nine miles of the course.
Any half marathoners finishing after four hours will not be scored as official finishers.
Participants must be at least seven years old on race day to register for the half marathon.
Per USATF rules, gun time is used to determine prize money winners and time bonus recipients. Chip time is used to determine all age-group winners and other award recipients. Unofficial results will include gun and chip time.
All registered participants receive a participation T-shirt at packet pick-up. All official half marathon finishers receive a finisher shirt and medal. Uncollected finisher items will not be mailed.
Half marathon runners will receive a food ticket on their bib and will be able to exchange that ticket for breakfast in the H-E-B Food Court where hot and cold breakfast items, including fruit and juice, will be served. Please click here to see a map of inside the GRB on race weekend.
