The Houston Marathon & Half Marathon Legacy Program

What is the Legacy Program?

The Houston Marathon and Half Marathon Legacy program is comprised of runners who have successfully finished 10 or more Houston marathons or 10 or more Houston half marathons within the official race time limits. These finishes do not have to be consecutive, but all finishes must be in the marathon or half marathon event exclusively.

Want to know how many official finishes you have to date? Check out the official finisher lists found below.

How do I become a Legacy Runner?

Once you have officially been a finisher in 10 Houston marathon races or 10 Houston half marathon races, you will automatically be added to the Legacy program. Each year, we update the official lists below or you may visit houstonresults.com page to see your status as a Legacy runner for the Chevron Houston Marathon or Aramco Houston Half Marathon.
