Texas > Texas MedClinic Half Marathon & 5K Run/Walk
San Antonio, TX



Saturday, October 9, 2010

Event Details

A unique race that takes runners along the banks of Leon Creek in the northwestern section of San Antonio, the Texas MedClinic Half Marathon & 5K takes the place of The Missions Half Marathon, which had been run on this date along the national park areas inside the city known as "the Missions," for the group of historic Spanish missions now known as the Mission Trail through San Antonio.

Designed as a tune-up training run for the Rock & Roll San Antonio Marathon & Half Marathon just a month later, the out-and-back course for the race starts and finishes at Leon Creek Greenway located at 8030 Bandera Rd. This is a new linear park and the race will start behind the Walmart and finish in the same location. The race will enter the Leon Creek Greenway and exit out on Rochelle Rd. Then the course will snake through this beautiful sub-division and re-enter the paved trail system.

The runners will continue to the end of this very scenic creek, this section is an out and back which will give many of the runners a view of the top runners as they race back to the start /finish line. Out and back races are a favorite because you can gauge your progress with others in your age group.

The starting time for the race is 8:00 AM, and both music and food will be provided at the post-race awards ceremony and celebration at Mission County Park. Early registration results in savings of $20 or more for registration, so be sure to sign up early.

Race Weather & Climate

The autumn season brings San Antonio generally milder weather than the hot conditions the city is known for in the summer, but temperatures can still be quite warm into the early fall. In October, the city's average monthly temperatures range between 82°F and 59°F, while rainfall amounts average about 3.86 inches for the month.
