More than 6,000 runners participated in the 3M Half Marathon on January 22. The race is known as one of the fastest because runners enjoy a mostly downhill route that showcases some of Austin's finest locations.
The elevation drop makes it easier for runners to hit personal best time and make it a favorite among those training for full marathons.
This year was the 23rd year for the race which benefits Girlstart.
$50,000 was raised for the organization which provides year round STEM education programs for students in grades K-12.
