Dubbed the “Prettiest Race in Texas,” the annual Chosen Half Marathon and 5K returns to the Central Texas Hill Country and New Braunfels on Nov. 23.
Chosen Half Marathon and 5K runners, ages 5 and up, will finish at the Rockin’ R main camp in Gruene, 1405 Gruene Road, New Braunfels, according to the race website. The cost to participate is $115 for the half marathon, $45 for the 5K and $20 for the Kids Fun Run—a 1/8 mile loop on the finish line grounds.
Race guideline state that runners in the 5K will start and finish at the Rockin’ R main camp, and half-marathoners will be bused 30 minutes to a starting point near the Rio Guadalupe Resort, 14130 River Road, New Braunfels.
