The Texas Marathon Kingwood has been held every New Year’s Day in Houston, Texas, USA since the year 2000.

The Texas Marathon Kingwood has an interesting history. It was started at the behest of Rick Worley who was working on setting a Guinness World Record for the most marathons on consecutive weekends. He needed a marathon on New Year’s Day and could only find a very difficult ultra-marathon. The race organizers offered to organize another marathon six days after the Free Kingwood Marathon using the same course, with a new name, “Jammin’ in January” and held it on New Year’s Day.

The race has been held on New Year’s Day every year since then. Rick completed the Texas Marathon four times and participated in it every year until 2006.

The proceeds of the marathon are split between three children’s charities.
