The South Padre Marathon has a race for everyone! Full marathon, half marathon and half marathon relay, all beginning in Port Isabel and crossing the causeway before finishing at Clayton's, the largest beach bar in Texas!
Down south, at the end of the world's longest barrier island, you'll find South Padre Island, home to the most scenic beaches in Texas. The blue waters of the Laguna Madre rest upon its western shore while the soft sand beaches on the east slide into the gentle surf of the Gulf of Mexico. In between, though only ½ mile wide, lies home to abundant wildlife, nightlife, shopping, first class dining, great family entertainment and of course, the most scenic beaches in all of Texas.
