The Woodlands Marathon kicked off with a 2K fun run and walk for families and a 5K race Feb. 27 followed by the marathon March 6. The event was held with special safety guidelines in place for participants, and the customary celebration after the event was not held. The 2020 marathon was held before COVID-19-related shutdowns were ordered, so the event did not miss a year. The event raises money for area nonprofit organizations.
