The 2019 Chevron Houston Marathon is in the record books now, but area runners have another long-distance race right around the corner. The Surfside Beach Marathon is scheduled for next weekend, taking place on February 2.

In many ways, the Surfside Beach Marathon and Half Marathon are the antithesis of their Houston counterpart. Instead of huge crowds of runners and spectators, a smaller but still enthusiastic number of participants and bystanders come to the event. Along some stretches of the course, there are more seagulls squawking than spectators cheering.
