WHERE YOU FINISH COUNTS
The medal sits lightly as it sparkles in the suns brilliance, only matched in radiance by the smile that now adorns your face, your naked feet greet the soothing Gulf waters in reward for their valiant effort. You met the suns first rays as you crossed the still waters of the Laguna Madre, but that was miles earlier, now the miles are behind you and satisfaction is replacing determination. You steal a glance at the medal dancing in the sun, look down to your feet rejoicing in the surf, you close your eyes and see the pride of accomplishment, it’s your turn to celebrate in South Padre.
Down south, at the end of the world’s longest barrier island, you’ll find South Padre Island, home to the most scenic beaches in Texas. The blue waters of the Laguna Madre rest upon its western shore while the soft sand beaches on the east slide into the gentle surf of the Gulf of Mexico. In between, though only ½ mile wide, lies home to abundant wildlife, nightlife, shopping, first class dining, great family entertainment and of course, the most scenic beaches in all of Texas.
The South Padre Marathon will have more than 20 Selfie Zones along the course, making it the Official Marathon of the Selfie!
Lets face it, running really is all about you! Your training, your commitment, your sacrifice and your achievement! We’re going to make it easy for you to commemorate your experience with fantastic stops along the course where you can catch a quick breather and take a great Selfie! Some of the Selfie Zones will be local landmarks while others will be created just for the run, however, all of them will be memorable!
