MIDLAND - West Texas marathon hopefuls can now begin their path to one of the most famous marathons right here in the Basin.

Beginning this October, a full blown 26 mile marathon will be run right here in the Basin brought to the area by Crossroads Fellowship Church.

The kicker, it's a qualifying race for the Boston Marathon.

Organizers say there's a lot to like about this race, but one of the best.

"We think that the course is gonna be pretty flat and fast, and so that should make it ver attractive for those qualifying for the big race," Reggie Baker with Crossroads Fellowship, said.

If you're not up to the 26 mile run, there's races for almost everyone, including a half marathon, a 5k run, and a kids race.

The big race is scheduled for October fourth.

In a couple of days, Crossroads Marathon will launch their website where you can get their information and updates.
