The Houston Marathon is held on January 19th and January 20th in downtown Houston. If you want to get the kids out for the 5k, that will be held on the 19th.

The Run for a Reason program allows you to run for your selected charity!
The Austin Marathon is on February 16th in downtown Austin, Texas! Similar to the Houston marathon, there are options to run a 5k or half marathon as well. Run alongside Austin’s unique views as you pass the UT tower, I Love You mural, and of course Lady Bird Lake! Stay tuned for this year’s celebrity Charity Chaser- donating to charities with each runner they pass!
This one is close to home! The Woodlands Marathon is on March 7th, offering a half marathon, 5k, and family 2k option as well. This run is sure to be entertaining as the event organizers developed the “Cheer Challenge”, where community villages support the participants with cheer zones along the 13.1 miles of course.
Each of these runs coming up in 2020 have significant ways to benefit and donate to a charity of your choice while making an immediate investment in benefitting your health! Start training before your new year’s resolutions come into play or else you’ll wait until next year!
