Gusher Marathon draws thousands to Southeast Texas

Posted: Updated:

Runners from all over the country and some from Canada and Mexico participated in the 5th Annual Exygon and Baptist Hospitals Gusher marathon Saturday morning. 

Over 2,000 runners registered for the event. 

The marathon started and ended at the Lamar University Montagne Center.  The course circled Lamar University, proceeded along MLK Parkway to College St. (HWY 90) and went through downtown Beaumont.

There were several streets barricaded along the route and traffic was detoured. Beaumont Transit will suspend city bus service during the marathon. All roads have now reopened due to the end of the race.
