Runners compete in Panhandle Marathon

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Sunday morning marks the beginning of the 2013 Panhandle Marathon, where runners compete in either a 5K or half-marathon race.

The marathon started at 7:30 a.m. in downtown Lubbock, next to the Civic Center. The marathon will last for 6-and-a-half hours, meaning that walkers can also participate.

 

If you plan on driving around town Sunday morning, be aware of runners at these intersections:
  • Avenue K and Broadway
  • Avenue K and 18th Street
  • 21st and Flint, 26th and Flint
  • Texas Tech Parkway and Erskine
  • Erskine and North UIndianna.
The course will be open until 2:30 p.m.

 

Each of the races will be started by the Texas Tech Masked Rider, and all entrants receive a T-shirt. Those who finish the full and half-marathons will win medals. The top runners of each age group will also get an additional award.

There will also be a post-race party at the finish line with plenty of food, water, drinks and activities.

Participants can register for the marathon online, by email or at the event for $90. Runners must be 16 years or older to qualify.

You can find a map of the marathon course on the Panhandle Marathon's website: http://panhandlemarathon.com/courseinfo.html, and more event details are located here: http://www.panhandlemarathon.com/details.html
