Marathon and Ultramarathons

On May 5th, 2018, Waxahachie Running Club is joining with the Waxahachie Lion’s Club to host a Marathon, a 50 mile Ultra-marathon, a 50k Ultra-marathon and a 50-mile relay. This year’s event will benefit the Waxahachie Lion’s Club support of the schools and children in Ellis County.  The marathon and ultramarathons will be held at Waxahachie’s Getzendaner Memorial Park, which is mostly closed from traffic. The course is 90% on concrete sidewalks, 10% dirt/gravel. This is a beautiful, fast, flat, and tree-lined out-n-back course!

USATF certified as a Boston Qualifier – Certification # TX18015LAB

We will have custom, dry-fit t-shirts for participants, custom medals, free online race photos, and lots of food and drinks during and after the event. Awards will be given to Men’s and Women’s 1st, 2nd & 3rd over and Masters in each non-team event.
