Description:
Bringing runners from all over the country, the Miracle Match Marathon is sponsored by the Waco Firefighters Association and benefits the National Marrow Donor program. Also included in the event are a half marathon, a 10K, a 4 person relay, a 5K, and one mile events. Plus the ever popular fire truck pull!! Two unique relay divisions, the Firefighter Relay and the Law Enforcement Relay, have our hometown heroes running in their professional gear and inspiring you all every step of the way. A full weekend event, there is a 5K and one mile fun run the day before, as well as an expo and pasta party in downtown Waco. We also have a kids marathon, for which kids log 25 miles of running throughout several months, then run the final mile of their 'marathon' across the suspension bridge to claim their medals. 26.2 miles of Central Texas hills make for a challenging course, and we are damn proud of it. Marathonguide.com considers ours to be one of the most scenic and challenging courses in the country. Highlighting Waco's most valuable assets, the race runs through the Baylor campus, up historic Austin Avenue, climbing up Lake Shore Drive, through the hills of MCC, and finally requiring the athletes to tackle the gorgeous but relentless hills of Cameron Park. The finish line is just over the historic suspension bridge, making for a fabulous finisher photo! And as if that is not enough, a Texas size party awaits... fajitas, beer margaritas, the works. You've earned it!
