Stuff Happens Program:
When you enter a Mellew Productions event, as with all major run events, there is always a clearly stated policy of no refunds, transfers and substitutions. So often you pay $50 or more for essentially a t-shirt. We all know that between payment for an event and the actual event, all the things of life can alter your ability to toe the starting line. We call this Stuff Happens.
Mellew Productions is proud to announce you now have an option to guarantee your entry fee. When you register online for any half marathon or full marathon, you will see a box in our entry form that will say "Stuff Happens", Check that box and $10 will be added to your final fee. If for any reason you cannot cross the start line your entry fees can be applied to a future Mellew half or full marathon event.
There are rules however.
Each of the races will be started by the Texas Tech University Masked Rider!
Tons of free parking next to the start line
Event runner's tech shirts for all entrants. Best of all our event shirt is gender specific and is made in the USA.
Great finisher medal for all half marathon finishers

Should you be unable to finish your distance, we will have event staff in support vehicles that will come and return you to the finish line. If you are running the marathon and complete the first 13.1 miles of the course and you do not finish, you will receive a half marathon finisher medal.
Race Recovery Food Court and Finish Line festival:
The Panhandle marathon will host a post-race party next to the finish line with plenty of post race food, liquids & activities.
You must be able to complete the half marathon in 4 hours. Slower runners and walkers who are not able to keep the respective pace will be subject to street re-openings/bridge openings and will need to proceed using sidewalks and road breakdown lanes. The finish line will remain open for 6 1/2 hours, therefore, you will still receive your finisher's medal.
