The course for the half marathon starts separately from the full, just a few blocks away from Minute Maid Park — the home of Major League Baseball’s Houston Astros — and shares the same route as the full marathon for approximately the first 8 miles. Runners follow the route as it curves through a series of city parks, including White Oak Park, Hogg Park and Stude Park, and then along the Allen Parkway and Buffalo Bayou Park on the way to the finish line in front of Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center.
