2020 ELITE RACE RECAP
HOUSTON (January 19, 2020) - The 48th Chevron Houston Marathon and 18th Aramco Houston Half Marathon took place this year with record-setting performances. The Chevron Houston Marathon and the Aramco Houston Half Marathon, both World Athletic Gold Label events, witnessed two national records, a world record, and a Guinness world record. An estimated 200,000 spectators, including belly dancers, greeted runners from all 50 states and 57 countries with cheers and true-Texas hospitality as they celebrated the spirit of the marathon and the spirit of the runner.

Jemal Yimer ran the second fastest time ever run in Houston and North America with a finish time of 59:25! He surged ahead in the mile mile of the Aramco Houston Half Marathon to break the tap inches in front of competitors, and within 3 seconds of the course record.

Hitomi Niya debuted this weekend in Houston, she set a new Japanese national record on her way to winning the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. Her time of 1:06:38 is the third fastest time in Aramco Houston Half Marathon history.  

Twelve American men and 18 American women met the qualifying standard to compete in the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta next month.

A total of 6,925 runners finished the marathon, while 13,450 completed the half marathon amid an ideal race morning temperature of 48 degrees, runners battled each other and 25-mile-per-hour wind gusts. 

One of the most exciting finishes of the day belonged to Michael Roeger (AUS). Roeger, a T46 Paralympian, obliterated his own world record (2:22:51) to, as he said in the pre-race press conference, “put his competitors on notice” heading into the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics. Roeger finished 26th overall in 2:19:33.
