About MIracle Match Race Series

The Miracle Match Marathon has found its niche as “The Toughest in Texas; No Bull”. We’ve got hills. We’ve got a race distance for everyone and every level. We’ve got more hills. We’ve got finisher jackets for the Full and technicals for the Half. Oh yes, and we’ve got a few more hills. Texas-sized medals hand cut by a Waco Fire Fighter who donated stem cells and saved the life of a complete stranger through Be the Match, our cause. And best of all we’ve got tough firefighters from all over this great state running in their turnout gear. And by the way… did we mention the hills??

Staged in the central Texas town of Waco to raise both awareness and funds for bone local marrow donation programs, the Miracle Match Marathon is actually several races in one. 

Begun in 2004 by the Waco Professional Fire Fighters Association, proceeds from the race are used to help patients and programs at the local Scott & White Marrow Donor Program. In keeping with the spirit of the race’s founders, the course for the marathon is challenging and includes a variety of different kinds of terrain.

Overview

 The Miracle Match course runs through the Baylor University campus and McLane Stadium, along the Brazos River, and gently climbs up historic and beautiful Austin Avenue. Climb up Lake Shore Drive, tackle the hills of McLennan Community College, then dig deep and conquer the gorgeous but relentless hills of Cameron Park. Run along the scenic Brazos River and welcome your final two miles. A flat and fast finish is our gift to you. Cross Waco’s historic Suspension Bridge and give us a Texas-sized smile for your fabulous, one-of-a-kind finisher photo.
