2018 Athlete Development Program (“ADP”) – NOW CLOSED.

The athlete development program (formerly the “subelite” program) includes a LIMITED number of runners that are provided the opportunity to have a priority starting location on race day in the Chevron Houston Marathon or Aramco Houston Half Marathon.  With a qualifying time, these runners get a free entry* and starting location just behind the elite athlete field and in front of the masses. This special entry does not include the option to place special fluids on-course.

If you have completed a marathon or half marathon in the past 18 months below the following times and would like to apply for the ADP corral, please email elite@houstonmarathon.com.

Marathon:

Men – 2:30:00
Women – 2:50:00

Half Marathon:

Men – 1:13:00
Women – 1:25:00

*For the 2019 events, athletes should contact the HMC about and ADP entry before registering. We will not be able to offer registration reimbursements for those athletes who registered and are then accepted into the ADP program.
