START LINE on Resort Pkwy in front of the Conference Center


Enjoy our sweet new Finish Line venue at the Riverbend Pavilion that sports ample festive spots indoors AND outdoors to bask in the glow of your amazing running accomplishments! We'll have a live DJ 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.


Stars at Night Charity

We are always humbled to help out organizations with this run and invite all of you to join us.

The two ministries we are helping this year are, Traveling Loaves and Fishes and Christian Assistance Ministries,(CAM). Traveling Loaves and Fishes have been a part of Stars at Night Half since the beginning and will again be serving in our bag check area. They provide daily delivery of nourishing meals and compassionate interaction.
