The Rhythm and Blues Half Marathon and 5K begins in downtown Houston’s historic Sam Houston Park. This familiar route will have an unfamiliar transformation with R&B bands lining the course along with pep squads and volunteers creating an electrifying, festive environment every step of the way for both half marathoners and 5K participants.
Gun time is used to determine winner prizes. Chip time is used to determine all age-group winners and other award recipients. Unofficial results will include gun and chip time.
