Half Marathon & 5K | 10K 

ANNOUNCMENT - 2020 RACE CANCELLATION:

As much as we hate to do it, the remaining races for 2020 have been CANCELLED.  

With restrictions in place regarding number of people allowed and social distancing, we can't see a viable option for hosting a safe race for our participants, volunteers and crew.

On to 2021!!  We are developing plans for our 2021 races to keep each of you safe.

Keep running, stay moving, and we will see you all at the finish line soon!

The Silent Wings Museum provides the perfect backdrop to “imagine” your run taking you out of this world. Willie McCool was the Pilot of the Space Shuttle Columbia (January – February 2003), a graduate of Lubbock’s Coronado High School (1979) and loved running. His legacy will inspire runners, both old and new and we are proud and honored to dedicate this race to his memory.

The half marathon course will have you traveling into outer space through the Lubbock Business Park, past the tree-lined Lubbock Country Club and re-entry through the Lubbock countryside west of the airport. Your mission on the 5K/10K course is to travel around the Galaxy and safely return to the Launch Pad/Finish Line at the Silent Wings Museum. As you run either course, you will discover the world according to Lubbock is, indeed, flat.

Commander Willie McCool Memorial Scholarship

Willie McCool was the Pilot of the Space Shuttle Columbia (January – February 2003) and a graduate of Lubbock’s Coronado High School (1979). A scholarship was established to honor students, like Willie, who have shown academic promise and have intentions of majoring in math, science, engineering, computer science or pre-medicine. The scholarship is awarded each year to a graduating senior at Coronado High School, who is in the top 25% of their senior class and demonstrates outstanding citizenship. West Texas Endurance is honored to make a donation to the Commander Willie McCool Memorial Scholarship on behalf of all participants of the Willie McCool Memorial Half Marathon, 5K and 10K.
