HOUSTON, Tex. - On January 13, a day shy of a year since the U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon, American men and women again return to Houston. And sure, maybe an Olympic spot isn't up for grabs (awesome because we won't have to blush at the sight of the States' best marathoners forced to wear 10-gallon cowboy hats) (no, none of them could pull it off). But while there's no Olympic team to make, 2013 is a World Championships year, and times run by the American men and women in Houston could sway the USATF selection committee for the team they send to Moscow in August.
HOUSTON - The 41st edition of the Chevron Houston Marathon Race Weekend features stacked fields in both the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. Adding an element of excitement to the weekend will be a $50,000 bonus that will be awarded should the world record fall in the men's half marathon. The gun is set to go off at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 13, 2013.
