Marble Falls High School Stadium,
The inaugural Hill Country Marathon will take place in Marble Falls, TX on Sunday, October 20, 2013. The Hill Country Marathon will consist of a full marathon on an out-and-back course and will also offer half marathon and 10k options.

The start/ finish will be at the stadium of Marble Falls High School. The Hill Country Marathon course is designed to engage the runner’s desire for challenge but will also be an enjoyable and remarkably beautiful experience. Along the picturesque and lushly lined country roads, runners will find well stocked aid stations at regular intervals and clear course markings.
Designed to be a family friendly event, there will be plenty for runners’ families and friends to do at the Hill Country Marathon. While runners are on the course, spectators can enjoy exploring the unique craftsmanship and artwork on display and for sale at a faire that will be in the parking lot of the stadium. Concessions from local food vendors will also be available. There will also be a kids’ mile race.
A portion of proceeds of the Hill Country Marathon will go to Serve Who Serve which is a local nonprofit that offers assistance to local military families.
