A .26 mile micro-marathon is headed to Houston this fall

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Forget 10Ks, 5Ks and fun runs, Houston will soon be home to a micro-marathon.

The MidMain Micro-Marathon is a whopping 0.26-mile-long run that features rest stops with fried pickles and coffee.

Runners over the age of 21 will also be offered a cold beer from Oasis Brewing Company.

The entry fee is $25 and includes a special race shirt and car decal.

The inaugural event will be held on Sunday, Sept. 30 near the Continental Club on South Main.
