Don’t walk, run to sign up for October 26th’s, Marathon 2 Marathon, the annual race in West Texas. It’s only fitting that our town of Marathon, named by seafaring Capt. Albion Shepard who said the desert area surrounded by mountains reminded him of Marathon in Greece, host this annual event. Whether you are interested in the Marathon, ½ Marathon, 10 k or 5 k, think no further and take advantage of the opportunity to run in a cool desert climate, on a gradual downhill course, in a wide open space surrounded by rolling mountains and gorgeous scenery.

Friday night, the Gage Hotel will provide guests and runners with a delicious Pasta Dinner in addition to the regular 12 Gage restaurant dining menu, along with live music  by Tessy Lou and The Shotgun Stars.  Saturday morning busses will shuttle runners from the Gage Hotel to their appropriate starting lines. After the Race we will celebrate with massages at the finish line, a Catfish Fry Fundraiser, street dance, and entertainment by Grupo Maracas.

That’s not all. That night the Marathon Motel Court Yard will host a post race Party with live music provided by the Craig Carter and Spur of the Moment Band. Reserve your rooms at the Gage Hotel for the weekend of October 25th here today.  We will make sure to send you to the race well rested and ready for the big day and we will pamper you upon your return: Enjoy a tasty meal from our 12 Gage restaurant, services from our spa, and a peaceful evening by one of our fire pits before retiring for the night and returning to a big, cozy bed. Hope to see you in October!
