0.5K Micro Marathon

Saturday, December 9, 2023
3PM - 5PM
Market Square in Downtown Brownsville

If it's before 3:00 p.m. on December 9, don't waste a second! Fill out the form below to secure your spot for the 0.5K MicroMarathon. It's all for a good cause—supporting the initiatives of United Way of Southern Cameron County.

If it's after 3:00 p.m. on December 9, stop reading and start moving! Head straight to Market Square, and we'll get you registered in person for our one-of-a-kind "race."

Get ready for the challenge of a 0.5K—walk it, skip it, or crawl it; the choice is yours. Once you conquer the course, you'll walk away proudly sporting a shiny finisher's medal, a snazzy race t-shirt, and an oval 0.5K bumper sticker that's just the right amount of pretentious.

Feel free to get creative with your attire, whether it's super-fancy running gear or fun Christmas costumes. And don't forget, there's an opportunity to win prizes for the best individual costume.

Looking for a team adventure? Join our relay race, teaming up with friends or colleagues to tackle the distance in manageable legs and compete in fun challenges along the way. The winning team takes home a cool trophy.

If you're up for the VIP experience, simply fill out the form below and select VIP to upgrade your medal to a BIGGER one. You'll also gain access to an exclusive VIP reception at Las Ramblas, complete with a delicious brisket sandwich and adult beverages.
