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 second year, a non-profit organization promoting patriotism, cultivating awareness and raising funds for our troops. Run the Half Marathon or 5K in your Boot Campaign boots to show your support. Special awards will be given to the overall male and female runner in each race who runs in their boots.
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.
Race has reached capacity. No transfers and no refunds. Thank you for your interest in this race – if you would still like to be a part of the day, we need volunteers. Volunteers get a bag of great Shiner things including a tshirt as well as a Partner Pass that gets you food and drinks. Click here for volunteer information.
The Partner Pass registration for spectators and supporters to purchase food and drink has been closed. A few Partner Passes will be available for sale on race day while supplies last. Please look for the tent marked ‘Partner Passes’. This will also be where those who registered in advance can pick up their wristband.
Wristbands will be available for pickup on race day for those registering for this option.
For any registration issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Get Me Registered service at 317-846-0078 x611.

Want to be a part of the action but can’t run or walk the half marathon or 5K? Consider being a volunteer. Your service hours will benefit the Boot Campaign. The campaign provides ways for Americans to show appreciation for troops, cultivate awareness of the challenges they face upon return and raise funds which are granted to programs meeting these physical and emotional needs.
In addition to the satisfaction of helping others and giving towards the Boot Campaign, all race day volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt and a Partner Pass for food and beer/soda at the race finish line area available from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Sign up to volunteer.
