T-shirts, medals, and stuff: Each participant and volunteer will receive a shirt. Each finisher will receive a custom finisher medal and a squeezie elephant with the finishing position hanging around its neck. Each registered participant will receive a goody bag. (The finisher medals are a secret until race day). The Texas Marathon started as a marathon event only. Later we added a half marathon to accomodate family members and local runners in the interest of promoting the sport. We became that our event has changed its focus from a marathon to a half. This was not our intention. We heard several runners comment that there was no reason to run the marathon when they would receive the same medal for running the half. We agreed. For the 2013 and all future events, marathoners will receive the really large medal and half marathoners will receive a substantial, yet smaller one. We feel this is in the best interest of the marathon sport. -Steve&Paula Awards: We have designated 2014 as the "year of the squeezie elephant". Each finisher will receive a squeezie elephant with the official finishing position hanging around its neck. Don't blame us if you have a very slow elephant. Last year was the "year of the squeezie cheesie rat" and the prior years have been: "year of the pink pig", "year of the yellow rubber duck", "year of the bat", "year of the monkey" , "year of the bear", and "year of the cow". There are no age group awards because every runner is special. Post race: A pizza picnic lunch is provided after the race with fresh pizza being delivered every hour starting at 10:00 AM. Also, snacks, fruit, cookies, chips, and soft drinks are available while you cheer on the other runners as they finish.
