Runners competing in the Livestrong Austin Marathon and Half Marathon "shadow run," round a bend in the course on Contingency Operating Site Kalsu, Iraq, Sunday. The three lap, 13.1-mile course followed the perimeter of the base and consisted of concrete walls and a gravel trail, in contrast to the paved roads and green trees of Austin, Texas. The Austin Marathon sponsored the race with shirts, medals, and a finish line banner.
