Time Limit…,3:45
TIME LIMIT of three hours and 45 minutes for MHSL Half Marathon. This is a pace of 17:10 per mile. Runners and walkers are both welcome. Please walk on the sidewalks if past 10:30am finish pace for your safety. SLPD will be in place from 6:45am-10:30am only.
NO headphones/Ipods at this race. Please leave them at home. Safety.
This is a double-loop course along beautiful Palm Royale Blvd in Sweetwater. 1,000 runners and walkers share one single lane, with the adjoining lane open to neighborhood vehicular traffic in the same direction. Faster runners must pass others on the outside of this single lane. As a result, headphones/Ipods are a SERIOUS safety hazzard. Everyone please leave all headphones/Ipods at home. Wearing headphones/Ipods at the MHSL Half Marathon endangers both yourself and others. Thank you in advance for complying!
NOTE: ALL runners MUST be registered…,visible MHSL Half Marathon number
Legally, ALL runners MUST be officially registered with a visible MHSL Half Marathon race number on front. Finish Line Sports has a City Parade Permit for the designated City of Sugar Land streets and runners lane for Sunday March 25 from 6:45am until 10:30am and any “,bandits”, will face a stiff fine. Anyone NOT registered who runs on the course during the race may face a “,theft of services”, charge and a fine of up to, but not to exceed, $500. Please point out any bandits to one of our 40 uniformed SLPD officers on the scene. (This is a rare problem, but an afront to our NINE race charities and other paying runners.) Pacing another without a number is not permitted. Thank you for officially registering and for supporting our race.
