Join us on January 20, 2019 at the McAllen Marathon for a 13.1 mile half marathon, 26.2 mile full marathon or 5 person relay marathon adventure through the streets of tropical McAllen, Texas where the average January weather is 50 to 71 degrees!

Start time will be 7:00 AM for all races which will start and finish at the McAllen Convention Center. The race courses are flat and fast with a South Texas breeze on asphalt routes that will cruise through shady McAllen neighborhoods with all the support needed to get you across the finish line for your first or fastest time!

The McAllen Marathon is a USATF-certified marathon, a great Boston Qualifier!


  • “I was born in McAllen and had only started running 2.5 years prior, but when I heard of the Inaugural McAllen Marathon, I thought we could only grow together (City and me). It was a great feeling of achievement even when it took me 5 hrs to complete but from there I know both (City and me) can only get better. I will run it every year to keep improving the time and the City will continue to host more and more runners. There is only room for improvement from here. So let’s run!!!!!!”

  • “This was my first half & loved it since it was on my bday! Felt a sense of accomplishment by finishing in under 2 hours. The main reason why I ran was for my father who has slowly lost his ability to walk. I run for those can't & looking forward to doing it again this yr. Keep up the good work!"

  • “Came all the way from Mexico City for this inaugural race!! Amazed with the excellent organization, from my 7 half marathons in 2013, this was my best time and knowing I was 5th place was just fantastic!! ...Ready to come back this year to enjoy the race, hope weather is a little bit warmer..Looking forward to being there again!!"
