Goodwill Central Texas will play an integral race-day role

High Five Events announces 3M Half Marathon presented by Under Armour will once again partner with Goodwill Central Texas. Their involvement will ensure the course and surrounding areas are left in better condition than before race day. The 3M Half Marathon will take place on Jan. 20, 2019.

“We’re fortunate to work with nonprofits like Goodwill Central Texas because they care deeply for the community,” said Stacy Keese, co-owner of High Five Events. “Their commitment to Austin and the community shines on race day and they help us leave the course in better condition than before race day.”

Goodwill Central Texas will have collection barrels at the beginning of the event to collect any discarded clothes. Their team will also collect items discarded during the first mile. This collection leads to increased items for Goodwill and job training skills opportunities.

The 3M Half Marathon boasts one of the fastest 13.1-mile courses in the country. It will celebrate its 25th year running in 2019. Runners will enjoy a point-to-point course with mostly downhill running that showcases some of Austin’s finest locations. Starting in north Austin and finishing near the Texas State Capitol, runners will appreciate a 306’ net elevation drop. Registration is currently open for all options.
