Write on METRO

Jan 10
Marathon Runners Ride Free


The 2018 Chevron Houston Marathon and Armco Houston Half Marathon races are gearing up to be the most competitive ever with elite past winners and a bigger prize purse. 

METRO is partnering with the marathon and offering free METRORail rides to all participants wearing race bibs on the day of the race - Sunday, Jan. 14.

If you’re cheering your friend or loved one in the race, the easiest way to navigate the crowds at the “eight-mile split” or get around town is to ride the rail.

If you’re driving into downtown, check out these downtown parking options and park near a rail line. Fannin SouthTransit Center also offers parking steps away from the Red Line, where you can park before hopping on METRORail. To see a map of the race and marathon detours, click here. 

Welcome to Houston, runners - and be sure to ride our trains for free on Sunday. Good luck!
