Grab your friends and plan to run the best l’il road race in Texas! Come add to the history and tradition of Texas by running the half marathon or 5K – both brewed in the heart of Texas and beginning and ending at the historic Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner. Stay for a spell and enjoy live music and brewery tours. Proud to benefit the Boot Campaign for the third year, a non-profit organization promoting patriotism, cultivating awareness and raising funds for our troops.
The town of Shiner sits deep in the heart of Texas, on a little spot hardly bigger than a postage stamp. You might even miss it if you blinked while zipping by on either US Highway 90A or State Highway 95, where the town sits at the crossroads, off the beaten path between Houston and San Antonio. It is about 120 miles from Houston, 90 miles from San Antonio and 85 miles from Austin.
