2018 Austin Marathon

In 2017, the Austin Marathon launched a division for visually impaired runners. In 2018, the program is expanding! The 2018 Austin Marathon will work with athletes and local families to provide homestays if needed and a pre-race dinner where athletes and guides can meet and talk strategy and logistics.

How to register: Athletes registering for the Austin Marathon’s Visually Impaired Runner Division will go through the same registration process and select either “Visually Impaired Athlete” or “Guide” when prompted. VI athletes will then select their classification; guides will select “Guide”. Classifications are B1, B2, and B3. Upon successful registration, runners must send their classification certification to William Greer (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)). The certification can come from a doctor or low vision specialist. Questions? Contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
