Enjoy our sweet Finish Line venue at the River Bend Pavilion that sports ample festive spots indoors AND outdoors to bask in the glow of your amazing running accomplishments! We'll have a festive music pumping up our runners as y'all pass by on course and at the Finish.





To safely navigate the TPC golf course sections of the scenic course that are in the dark, we require our runners & walkers to have some sort of lighted device to assist them. The illuminated cart paths are for directional purposes only and not enough to light up the entire path since it’s such an expansive area. If you forget your running headlamp, we will have a limited number for sale at a nominal cost to help keep you safe out there. Runners WITHOUT some sort of lighted device are subject to disqualification. Safety first folks! We appreciate your understanding since this is such a wonderfully amazing venue. It is such a very rare opportunity to run at the JW Marriott San Antonio & TPC San Antonio, we prefer not to wear out our welcome.
