Big turnout at Mayor's Half Marathon

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Residents were running for a good cause Saturday morning.

The Mayor's Half Marathon Race had a bigger turnout this year with around 190 runners in attendance.

All the money raised goes back to our city.

"We have numerous parks around the city that we oversee and take a look at. Improvements need to be made in our athletic facility and other facilities there. Obviously we need some money to improve those facilities especially our complexes and things like that. Overall there's not enough money to go into all those parks, we need help at times. Any little bit helps us," says Kim Killian, Amarillo Parks and Recreation.  

Those who ran says it was a great experience and they received a lot of encouragement along the way. 

Amarillo's Parks and Recreation wants to thank all of the sponsors involved who made the marathon possible.
