The East Texas Half Marathon is a 13.1-mile premier East Texas racing event traversing the beautiful scenery and historical attractions boasted by Nacogdoches, Texas. A portion of proceeds from the event support Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital's mission of providing the best healthcare for our community in a caring way. Money raised through this race will be used for projects like the construction of a helipad and the acquisition of new equipment, like a mobile mammography unit. Services like these will impact the health of Nacogdoches citizens now and far into the future.
Nacogdoches Memorial Health needs help to make this event happen! Please consider volunteering to help at the event. ALL volunteers will receive a RaceTX volunteer shirt. Be sure to indicate your size when you register. https://www.raceit.com/
When you register, you will be asked to choose where you would like to help. If you are a member of an organization or team or wish to volunteer with a specific person/group then please list that as well.
