“I’m excited to run the 2020 3M Half Marathon with my daughter, Kayleigh, for a second time,” said Austinite Sandy Williamson, who has completed 3M Half Marathon six times. “I look forward to watching her crush her 2019 time with a sub-4 hour finish!”
Nearly 7500 participants registered for the 2019 3M Half Marathon. That represented the largest field in the event’s 25 years running the streets of Austin. The standalone half marathon, also known as Downhill to Downtown, is excited to see its registration numbers continue to grow. Planning began months ago for one of Austin’s favorite running events.
The 2019 3M Half Marathon showcased a competitive elite field. Michael “Slim” Morris (1:07:19) and Jessica Harper (1:14:23) were the male and female champions. $50,000 was donated to Austin Youth River Watch in conjunction with 3Mgives. The energetic finish line festival provided participants an opportunity to meet up with family and friend to celebrate their accomplishments. Participants enjoyed the Oskar Blues beer garden, a live DJ, and food trucks. Participants enjoyed a fully supported course, complete with eight aid stations stocked with nuun and water, a Gatorade Endurance Zone, and thousands of cheering spectators with hilarious signs. The 2019 commemorative finisher medals featured a new, fresh look, complete with a spinning number 25 in the center.
The 3M Half Marathon boasts one of the fastest 13.1-mile courses in the country. Runners 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 starting May 1st.
