San Marcos Like a Local

San Marcos Fall Runs

September 23, 2019

Ah, it’s the first day of fall in San Marcos! Cooler weather is on its way, slowly but surely, and we plan on spending as much time as possible exploring natural San Marcos and getting our bodies moving. From hiking and leisurely strolls through parkland, to running or walking in local races, treat your body to a fun fall fitness SMTXperience.


San Marcos Beer Run

Every Thursday
The San Marcos Beer Run at Hops & Grain is the perfect activity for those who love to treat themselves to a cold beer after a nice run. The run, which happens every Thursday, follows one of three Mermaid routes and ends at Hops & Grain with a free beer waiting for you.
