Fort Bend Kia Half Marathon, Half The Distance – Twice The Fun!

Come celebrate the 11th annual Fort Bend Kia Half Marathon. Our event is known as “Everyone’s Half Marathon” because we believe all athletes, no matter what their pace, should get the chance to enjoy the race experience. Athletes can take up to six hours to finish the half marathon course, so no one is left behind.  All levels of runners and walkers are welcome to attend – it is the perfect race for veteran runners or first-time competitors.

  • USATF certified course (certificate # TX16009LAB)
  • Boston Qualifier
  • Flat and fast course, and well attended by spectators
  • Top support with fluids, aid stations, and medical personnel
  • Lots of “Bling”
  • Great Post Race Party and Food Court!

A Finishers Medal as you cross the finish line – there is nothing like having that medal placed around your neck!
