The Houston Rhythm and Blues Half Marathon starts at Sam Houston Park, and the course takes runners west on Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive. The race course consists of a quarter marathon loop, which is shown below; half marathon runners will run this loop twice. This ensures runners will get more frequent encouragement through the bands performing on the course, as well as through cheering sections.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
