Brownsville Market Square MicroMarathon 0.5K

Saturday, December 1, 2018
11 a.m.
Market Square in Downtown Brownsville

So, you've got what it takes to walk, skip or crawl 0.5K?

Register now for the Inaugural Market Square MicroMarathon 0.5K to benefit the education initiatives of United Way of Southern Cameron County.

Find 5K's intimidating and marathons unimaginable? Join us for a very fun 0.5K (hint: that's about 546 yards). Show those snooty marathoners that you've got the goods, too, when you walk away from this 0.5K race with your shiny finisher's medal, race t-shirt, and pretentious oval Euro-style 0.5K sticker that you can stick on the rear window of your car to announce your athletic accomplishment to the world.

Event Options:

  • Wear your super-fancy running gear or whoop it up with fun costumes. Prizes for the best individual costume and relay team costume.
  • If you prefer to avoid all that training you can pay a small VIP premium and we'll drive (or wheel) you around the course (if you'd like) and give you an even BIGGER medal than those who break a sweat. You'll also hang out at a swanky VIP reception at Dodici's courtyard, nibbling their famous pizza and sipping adult beverages.
  • You could also form a relay team with your friends or colleagues and break up that grueling distance into more manageable relay legs. Relay teams will have the opportunity to compete in fun challenges along the route, and the winning team will walk away with a cool trophy.
  • Even relay teams can be VIP's. Just click the VIP Relay Participant button below and make sure the rest of your team does the same. We won't limit the size of your team. Invite all of your VIP friends to join you in the VIP experience--bigger medals, the chance to be driven around the course instead of "running" and the outrageously great VIP reception in the courtyard at Dodici, complete with pizza and adult beverages. A truly upgraded experience for just $50 per relay team member.

Hydration stations just might have beverages other than water for those of legal age to imbibe (bring your picture ID), and if you need to reload your carbs, donuts will be served at the midpoint of the race.
