The Highest Off-the-Ground Half Marathon in Texas
177 feet water clearance
Press Release: Running Alliance Sport (RAS) is pleased to announce that Novemberís seventh annual La Porte By The Bay Half Marathon has been awarded the Texas State Half Marathon Championship by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) for the second time (in PDF format)
The La Porte By the Bay Half Marathon starts from Sylvan Beach Park by the water, proceeding through La Porte streets and on to the Fred Hartman Bridge, one of the most beautiful and unique structures in Texas.
Supported by two sets of diamond-shaped reinforced steel towers that reach 440 feet into the sky with distinctive yellow cables that seem to glow in the sun, the effect is almost like running through a magnificent open air cathedral. After looping back to take on the bridge for a second crossing, the race finishes at Five Points Plaza where the post-race party awaits with amazing food and cold beer, awards and good times with family, fellow runners and friends.
All finishers will receive a medal.
