Coming up on March 4th, 2017, this marathon is a great, fun-filled opportunity for all members of the South Tyler community and surrounding areas. The main attraction is the 15K route, but there will also be the option of a 5K for less experienced runners and a 1K “Li’l FRESHie” marathon for kids 12 and under. All three options will take participants through South Tyler, including giving them a glimpse of the Hollytree Country Club and challenging them to climb the notorious Heartbreak Hill.
With your entry into the FRESH 15 race, you’ll get a Swag Bag with fun gifts like a free t-shirt, a Finisher’s Blanket and Medal, free race photos, Live Runner tracking, and, for participants in the 15K, a shaker cup. Children participating in the 1K will also get their fair share of freebies, such as a medal, t-shirt, drawstring backpack, and access to the kids’ area (bonus - parents get to run with their children FREE).
For those gunning to finish with winning times, there are cash prizes for the top ten runners. The prize purse this year consists of $22,000 that will be divided up amongst the winners, with the first place prize being a staggering $2,500. So what are you waiting for? Sign up, get out there, and train for a chance to participate in one of this year’s most fun marathons!
