Miracle Match Marathon - Waco Texas

Miracle Match Marathon

Back before there were Gu Gels and Dri-Fit underwear, Waco Firefighter C.W. Whorton ran marathons. Then one he got the idea to host a marathon in Waco. Who knew where it would lead??

The Story of Our Medal

Finisher medals for Waco’s Miracle Match Marathon are handcrafted by Tim Anderson, Engineer and Equipment Operator with the Waco Fire Department.


Firetruck Pull


Get your friends, family and co-workers to join you in putting together a team! Teams of up to 20 individuals compete to pull a WFD Fire Truck 50 yards the fastest.



Hilly. Every year people complain that we didn’t tell them how hilly the course is. Seriously? Did they not hear our mantra? Toughest in Texas. No Bull.
