Houston Marathon Hoopla Brigade

  • Picnic Box Lunches 1928 Bissonnet Street Houston, TX, 77005 United States (map)


Every year, more than 25,000 racers from across the globe descend upon Houston for the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon.

As runners tackle Houston’s highly acclaimed course, JASH will be joining the more than 250,000 supporters and spectators in sharing Houston’s hospitality.

Come help us cheer on the runners - including Japan’s marathon record holder Suguru OSAKO, the Consul-General of Japan in Houston and JASH’s President and Vice President - to the finish line in Japanese fashion!

JASH has been placed on MILE 7 of the course at the intersection of Bissonnet & Hazard in front of Picnic Box Lunches, and we can expect to see runners pass through this location from around 8:30AM. Please click here to view the 2019 course map with road closures.
