Welcome to Corpus Christi’s 15th annual Harbor Half Marathon, presented by Flint Hills Resources. We are excited about the unique features of this event. It is “the highest half in Texas” and will be guaranteed to challenge even the most seasoned runner. Our goal is to offer a half marathon that is challenging, yet allows the runners to experience the best that Corpus Christi has to offer.
Start & Finish:
Saturday, November 2, 2019
Corpus Christi, Texas
(734 E. Port Ave.)
The half marathon will take you down through historic areas of the Corpus Christi harbor, across the Harbor Bridge, along Corpus Christi Beach, and up on to the causeway, which will take you out across the Nueces Bay and onto one of the most natural and scenic wetland habitats of our coastline, Sunset Lake Park.
The Harbor Half is a spectacular Half Marathon, Relay, 5K and 10K. If this is your first time, we know it will be a wonderful new race experience. If you are a returning runner, you know exactly what type of excitement is in store. You won’t want to miss out on this run!
