General Information

On behalf of the Houston Marathon Committee and the City of Houston, it is our distinct pleasure to welcome athletes and fans to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon, hosted on behalf of the United States Olympic Committee and USA Track & Field on Saturday, January 14, 2012.
The City of Houston is renowned for its passionate and avid running community, and we are privileged to host the finest men and women long distance runners in the nation as they compete for the first time in an Olympic Trials Marathon on the same national stage.  The 8-mile loop course was designed to replicate the course in London at the 2012 Olympic Games next August.  The top three men and women finishers will comprise Team USA and represent our country in the marathon in London eight months after the Trials.
We hope you have an exciting and memorable experience in Houston.  Best wishes for a successful race!
