The South Padre Marathon

On November 11th and the 12th of 2017, South Padre Island will host its annual marathon where thousands are expected to compete. Bag check times will start at 4:30 AM and the event itself is expected to begin at 6:30 AM. There will be several races, including a 10K, a half marathon and a full marathon. This contest stretches from one end of SPI all the way across the Queen Isabella Causeway, to just north of Andy Bowie Park and finally finishing at Clayton’s Beach Bar.

Shuttles will be provided to runners only and there will be parking and designated areas for spectators. There will be several award categories for participants in various age groups, and the South Padre Marathon opens the possibility for runners to raise funds for their favorite charity, making every step matter.

Readying for the Marathon

Like many weekends with events taking place, thousands are expected at the island along with hotels being booked. If you’re an out-of-towner, you’ll more than likely be searching for a hotel room or condo to rest before heading home. Imagine the convenience of owning your own property at this beautiful getaway without having to worry about making long trips to and from. Or, consider purchasing a property and renting it out for extra income!

Sitting on the Bay

Las Brisas
Here’s just one of many residences that Troy Giles Realty & Management has on the market. Sitting on the bay at South Padre Island is a wonderful two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo at the Las Brisas Bayfront Condominiums. This fully-furnished residence features a contemporary beach style ambience. Each bedroom has large closets and both bathrooms come with a bathtub/shower combination. There are also two balconies, with one in the master bedroom that overlooks the location’s swimming pool.

Las Brisas

Sitting next to the bay means that the Las Brisas is a prime spot for fishing, and they have a great place to sink your line. There are common boat docks, and if you hook a big catch, there’s a fish-cleaning station available for residents as well. The Las Brisas also comes with a pool and there’s plenty of patio furniture to relax on.

The Las Brisas is located at the center of the island and is in close proximity to delicious restaurants and other great landmarks. As we mentioned earlier, you can rent out your island pad to short term guests staying over the weekend or long-term residents like Winter Texans.
