We will be having a new 5k Christmas Lights Night Race coming in November/December 2020!
To all of the Amarillo Marathon runners, sponsors and volunteers. As many of you know for the next Amarillo Marathon we are changing the course. After researching and measuring this new course and getting approval from TxDot and Randall County we determined that due to new construction occurring in 2020 we needed to delay the Amarillo Marathon. More specifically, as a result of this construction, one mile of this route was going to be on a dirt road. We decided that is just too large of a risk for our runners safety. Fortunately, the completed course will be available in time for the 2021 Amarillo Marathon! We are also excited to announce that we have obtained a new major sponsor. We will have the same race events including the Full Marathon, Half Marathon and the 5k as well as our famous water stations! Thank you again for participating in and supporting the Amarillo Marathon during our first five years! We have been blessed with loyal runners, great sponsors and amazing volunteers and committee members! We have and will continue to give ALL proceeds to our benefitting charity.
Full Marathon * Half Marathon * 4 Person Full Marathon Relay * 5K *
Online and paper registration links are below!
Thank you to those who contacted us to serve on the Amarillo Marathon Committee. We are an all-volunteer organization and we could not present this event without the generous support of our race volunteers, sponsors and committee members.
