Feb. 22 Half Marathon Course Includes 4 Miles Through Fort Sam Houston
Anyone with a new resolution to run needs to register for the 2015 Alamo Run Fest, which is shaping up to be one of the best local events in the new year. Alamo Run Fest is San Antonio’s signature local running event, and with run distances from 5K, 10K to a half marathon, there’s plenty of challenge and fun for runners at all levels. This year’s half marathon includes a couple of exciting elements.
First, four miles of the course will wind through Fort Sam Houston, the first time a local running event has been allowed to pass through the base since 9/11. Second, half marathoners will finish in the Alamodome (how cool is that!).
More than a race, Alamo Run Fest includes an expo at the Alamodome on Saturday, Feb. 21, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event’s primary beneficiary is America’s Fund, and active duty military members and their dependents can save 20 percent on online registration.
