Chosen’s mission is to host sporting events to financially impact orphans & adoptive families and raise awareness of the 165 million orphans worldwide. Since its inaugural race in 2010, Chosen has grown to four cities and has an expected turnout of nearly 50,000 runners. The Chosen Marathon is one of New Braunfels’ newer traditions, but definitely one that we hope is here to last!


Wassailfest is a timeless New Braunfels tradition filled with music, seasonal fun, food, holiday shopping, and Wassail of course!
