 The River City Half Marathon 5k & 10k Salado Creek is a chip timed race with great aid stations, finish line food and awesome awards.  The course runs along the beautiful Salado Creek Greenway in San Antonio, Texas. You will see some amazing local wildlife and great south Texas scenery along this paved trail.  And of course, each participant will get an AWESOME finisher’s medal!

The Course:  The Salado Creek Greenway is one of San Antonio’s hidden gems.  It is a wide, paved trail that extends for over 7 miles in length with water fountains and porta-potties along the way.  The River City Half Marathon 5k & 10k Salado Creek will both start and finish at the Southside Lions Park East Trailhead (3100 Hiawatha, San Antonio TX 78210).  This is an out and back race course.

Aid Stations: We will have ample water and aid stations throughout the course.  Our 5k participants will have two stations, 10k participants will have four stations and half marathon participants will have six aid stations to keep you hydrated and motivated throughout your entire 13.1 mile run!

Awards:  We will have age group awards for men and women.  More info announced soon.

Packet Pickup: Will be at Fleet Feet Sports on Saturday, April 7th from 3pm – 6pm.  We will be at their Quarry location at 7322 Jones Maltsberger Rd

San Antonio, TX 78209.  Race day packet pickup will be available from 6:45am – 7:15am, however please try your best to make it on Saturday.  That will allow race day to go a lot smoother for everyone.  Thank you for understanding.

Staggered Starting Times:The Salado Creek Greenway is a public trail and is required to stay open (per City of San Antonio) during our event.  Other runners and bikers will be on the trail and we will need to share it responsibly.

To alleviate congestion on the trail, we will have a staggered start.  At the start of the race, we will have a 3-5 second gap between runners.  If you have a running partner, we will accommodate starting together. The Half Marathon will begin at 7:30am, the 10k will begin at 7:40am and the 5k will begin at 7:45am.  The event will be chip timed, so your time will begin when you cross the starting line.

Please follow trail etiquette and keep to the right of the trail.  Doing so allows for two-way traffic.  You can run side by side, however please use trail courtesy and allow runners to pass you on the left. You may need to run single file at times to allow people to pass you.  By following proper trail etiquette, the race will go smoothly for everyone on the trail and we will have a great time.  We appreciate your support with this.
