UTHealth Houston & Houston Half Marathon Sign Three Year Title Sponsorship Agreement 3/28/2024


HOUSTON, TX (MARCH 28, 2024) – The Houston Striders have reached an agreement with UTHealth Houston for a three-year title sponsorship of its flagship event, the Houston Half Marathon. For the duration of the partnership, the race will be officially known as the UTHealth Houston Half Marathon. This agreement expands on UTHealth Houston’s title sponsorship in 2023 and features a newly designed race logo.

“We are thrilled to welcome UTHealth Houston to our flagship event for the next three years,” said Houston Striders President, Kofi Burney. “As leaders for health care education, research, and clinical care, UTHealth Houston will be an invaluable partner to our organization, its charitable efforts, and our athletes. We are looking forward to beginning our work together.”

A staple of the local running and athletics event calendar, the Houston Half Marathon has seen impressive growth post-COVID, selling out for the first time with a record 7,500 runners across the 10K and half marathon events. The Houston Striders have made significant charitable contributions to the Houston community with the proceeds of this race, including through the Kind Stride program, which matches donations made by runners.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for UTHealth Houston to engage again with the community through a fun, fitness-forward event,” said Andrew Casas, senior vice president of UTHealth Houston and Chief Operating Officer of UT Physicians. “Two iconic Houston brands are coming together in one stellar event that emphasizes health and fitness.”

The sponsorship also includes opportunities for UTHealth Houston to highlight its services. With more than 2,000 clinicians certified in more than 80 medical specialties and subspecialties, UT Physicians, the clinical practice of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, provides multispecialty care for the entire family. Medical tents at the event will be staffed by UTHealth Houston personnel.

The 2024 UTHealth Houston Half Marathon is scheduled for October 27th, 2024. Beginning at Sam Houston Park and taking its iconic route down Allen Parkway and through Memorial Park, this year’s event promises to be as big as last year’s sellout. Early bird pricing is available from April 1 to April 30 for $65.
