If you want to participate in a marathon while having a romantic getaway, go to Austin for Valentine’s Day weekend. This year, the annual Austin Marathon is going to be held on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2010.
The first Austin Marathon was held in 1992. This Boston qualifier event is a full and half-marathon for both runners and walkers. The course is relatively flat compared to many other marathons. As the city prides itself on being “The Music Capital of the World”, there will be live band performances on the race day as well as Health and Fitness Expo before the race day. According to Runner’s World Magazine, Austin Marathon is the Greenest Race in North America.
Don’t forget to fuel up for the marathon by eating high-carb foods and celebrate your achievement at the end of the race with live music and a cold beer. Good luck to all!
