The Silo District Marathon is the annual race hosted by Magnolia here in Waco, Texas. This race began in 2018 because of Chip’s goal to run a marathon in honor of his friend, Gabe Grunewald, a professional mid-distance runner battling a rare form of cancer. This USATF certified race is a Boston Marathon qualifier, and with a 5K, half and full marathon, there is a race to challenge all skill levels. This year’s races will be held Sunday, April 28th, and race profits will benefit cancer research. See you at the starting line!
