Official Website


The Prettiest Race in Texas Half Marathon, benefitting Chosen Care,  is set in the heart of the Texas Hill Country and runs along the scenic Guadalupe River on River Road passing beautiful campsites, canyons and cliffs offering spectacular river views that make this course deserving of the name, The Prettiest Race in Texas.

The Half Marathon starts at  the Summit Campsite and is a point to point run with gently rolling hills, and the 5K is a fast yet challenging loop course. The 5k starts at Rockin R River Rides. Both events finish at Rockin R in New Braunfels, right across the river from historic Gruene, Texas and centrally located between Austin, San Antonio and New Braunfels . A great place to spend the afternoon after the finish.

2020 will be the 11th Annual running of the Prettiest Race in Texas and continues to benefit Chosen Care to help children heal from trauma by strengthening their families.

Half Marathon start time is 7:30am. Please note the start is a 30 minute drive from Rockin R in New Braunfels.
