The Galveston Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K aren’t just for islanders. The races now attract an international field, and when the runners toe the starting line Sunday morning, most of the U.S. will be represented as well.

“We have runners from 35 states and five countries,” race organizer Jana Landry said.
