From downtown, participants run through the Heights and Montrose neighborhoods. At approximately mile 9, half marathoners split off from the marathon course and return to finish at the George R Brown Convention Center (GRB). Marathoners continue through Rice and West University, passing the Galleria, Tanglewood and Memorial Park areas, before returning to finish at the GRB.
About Jill Jarvis
Jill Jarvis is the owner of JillBJarvis.com, a BigKidSmallCity.com and Things to Do in Houston, with Kids, blog!
She is the mom of five and started the website years ago... when she was tired of constantly cleaning up the same mess in the family room.
Another mom showed her that you could just go do fun things in Houston, without hours of planning.
This inspired the blog and changed everything about how she enjoyed life in Houston, with kids!
