San Marcos Half Marathon 10k and 5k formerly Mo's Better Half
Race 3 of 4 of the Texas Hill Country Half Marathon

San Marcos Half Marathon, 10k and 5k.  Come to marvelous San Marcos and run a race that is likely older than you are....right?

Moe retired and passed his legacy over to Scallywompus Events.  We will have the race in the same location but we will inject the Scallywompus trademark fun and festivities for after the race.

After all our motto is Come for the race, stay for the party!"  So do it sign up for the series.


San Marcos Half Marathon, 5k and 10k is an event to honor the retired "Oldest Half Marathon in Central Texas" Moe's Better Half Marathon. This event is now under the managment of Scallywompus Events.

This event starts and finishes in the Tanger Outlet Mall parking lot and goes through a beautiful course through the Texas Hill Country and Praires. In addition to the Half Marathon we will be adding a 5k and 10k for more choices.

As always the post race event will be an explosion of excitement and fun Scallywompus Style!
