The Mayor's Fitness Council is hosting the 2021 Mayor's Marathon in the City of Lubbock on Sunday, October 31, 2021. Organizers anticipate 1,500 athletes to participate in this one-day event. A 1-mile Kids Fun Run will be held for runners under the age of 8. Other events are a 5k (3.1 mile), a half-marathon (13.1 miles), and a full marathon (26.2 miles).
