About BCS Marathon and Half Marathon

Join us in December for the highest rated marathon in the state of Texas (marathonguide.com). How satisifed are our runners? 99% of the runners who filled out our post race survey told us they found the organization of our race to be excellent or good. More than 96% said they found the value of our race to be excellent or good. Those numbers don’t lie.

You’ll have the opportunity to explore the Bryan/College Station community as well as experience the spirit of Aggieland while you run through the Texas A&M campus.

The marathon course is USAT&F certified and a Boston Marathon qualifying race.

Distances

Practicalities

Aid Stations

Aid stations will be every 1.5 miles and include both water and lemon-lime Gatorade, and every fourth Aid Station will also have fuel including gel, candy, and brownies. Port-a-Potties are at approximately every 3 miles along the courses.

Award Medals

Everyone will receive a participant shirt and all race finishers will receive a technical fabric finisher’s shirt and custom finisher’s medal. There will also be a “bonus” item for every runner that we will announce closer to race day.

Maximum Time

The time limit for completing the marathon is six and a half hours. The course closes on a rolling schedule based on a 15:00 per mile pace (6 hours and 30 minutes total) for both the half and full marathons. The half marathon converges with the full marathon around mile 8, which allows half marathoners extra time to complete the race after that point.

Highlights

Runners will have the opportunity to explore the Bryan/College Station community as well as experience the Aggie spirit while you run throughout the Texas A&M campus.

Overview

The race courses are primarily flat and fast, and the route includes plenty of shady neighborhoods, several golf courses, and enough crowd support to help you get to the finish for your first time or your fastest time. The marathon course has a few rolling hills miles 11 – 13, but is otherwise flat.
