3M Half Marathon welcomes the return of Ascension Seton as Official Medical Provider

High Five Events announces Ascension Seton will return as the Official Medical Provider for the 2020 3M Half Marathon presented by Under Armour. Ascension Seton and their experienced team will have an on-course presence throughout the race route. They will also have a medical tent at the finish line. The 3M Half Marathon will take place on Jan. 19, 2020.

“Ascension Seton is excited to be a partner with the High Five Events team and the Official Medical Provider for the 3M Half Marathon for the second year in a row,” said Adam Bauman, vice president of orthopedics and sports performance at Ascension Seton. “We are proud to support and care for the vibrant running community in the city of Austin and beyond.”

As the Official Medical Provider, Ascension Seton doctors and nurses will staff the finish line medical tent and work with Travis County EMS on course. They will also have a presence at the two-day expo. Ascension is one of the leading nonprofit and Catholic health systems in the U.S.

“We take participant safety seriously and are glad to have Ascension Seton back as our Official Medical Provider,” said Dan Carroll, co-owner of High Five Events. “We know that the thousands of 3M Half Marathon participants and volunteers will be in good hands with their doctors and nurses should they be needed.”

The 3M Half Marathon boasts one of the fastest 13.1-mile courses in the country. It will celebrate its 26th year running in 2020. 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. Participants can register on the website.
