The tight loop course for the Houston Half Marathon takes runners on an out-and-back course along Allen Parkway in the shadow of Houston’s downtown skyscrapers, starting on the edge of Sam Houston Park, along Bagby Drive. From there, the course heads west and then east along the Buffalo Bayou, the main waterway that flows through the center of the city, all the way to the West Loop Service Road and back.
