SAGU Half Marathon & 5k

The Annual SAGU Half Marathon is considered one of the fastest courses in North Texas. 85% of the 13.1 trek is on flat ground that covers a good portion of the City of Waxahachie. The course starts and finishes on the beautiful campus of Southwestern Assemblies of God University and plays host to many of the fastest collegian marathoners in pursuit of qualifying for the NAIA National Outdoor Track Championships in May. Our USATF Certified course will see much more national men's and women's qualifiers this year and hope you will shoot for a PR with them.

Our goal is to provide an amazing racing experience all the while keeping the price down. All participants receive a finisher's shirt and a custom 3' finisher's medal for the low price of $50! The proceeds from the SAGU Half go towards supporting the Men's and Women's Cross Country and Track Programs at Southwestern Assemblies of God University.
