You’ll get two for the price of one at the 40th Anniversary Chevron Houston Marathon. Wait, actually, you’ll get three and a half for the price of one. The Men’s and Women’s Olympic Trials Marathons take place on Saturday, while Sunday brings the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. Some of America’s finest will be in the trials, while world-class runners from dozens of countries will be participating in the Chevron competition. When you’re not watching the elite athletes, make time to stop in the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine EXPO or the fan fest.
Everything is centered around the George R. Brown Convention Center. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, 7 a.m. Sunday. 1001 Avenida de las Americas. For information, call 713-957-3453 or visit www.chevronhoustonmarathon.com. Free.
