Aramco Houston Half Marathon to host USA Half Marathon Championships - HOUSTON (January 7, 2015) - The 43rd edition of the Chevron Houston Marathon Race Weekend features stacked fields in both the Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Houston Half Marathon, which plays host to the USA Half Marathon Championships. Race-day for the 2015 Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon is Sunday, January 18.
"Three of our four 2014 champions are returning in 2015, although one has switched from the half marathon to the marathon," said Chevron Houston Marathon Race Director Brant Kotch. "Our professional fields for the marathon are particularly well-stocked with runners who have had promising debuts and other quality results, and we think they're ready to step up and deliver some really stellar performances on our stage. The fields in the USA Half Marathon Championships are deeper than ever, even with intentionally heightened entry standards. We think everyone is ready to put on a first-class show."
