HOUSTON – The first of the Houston Marathon Weekend events kicked off Saturday morning with the ABB 5K.
Runners raced through Downtown Houston before crossing the finish line at Discovery Green. A New Yorker won for the men, finishing in just under 16 minutes. Lake Jackson native, Lauren Smith finished in 18 minutes.
Runners also got their last chance to check out the Marathon Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center. It was the last chance for marathon runners to pick up their packets before Sunday’s big event.
The expo also featured all the new and greatest products for runners. Nutrition experts were also on hand to give advice before the big run.
