Yesterday, Chip Gaines took to instagram to make a formal announcement of the first Silo District Marathon, taking place on May 6th, 2018. As Gaines has revealed in previous social media posts, he's been training diligently to accomplish his goal of running a marathon this year.

It's been a difficult path for the 'Fixer Upper' star so far ("I wish I could sugarcoat this but the last 2 runs have been tough. Yesterday was seemly all up hill and it kicked my butt. Today it was 27° and for us Texans that may as well be 10 below," he captioned a recent running selfie), but he's determined to run all 26.2 miles...with friends and fans alongside him.

In addition to a full marathon, there will also be a half marathon and 5k race. Inspired by a woman the couple met in New York City, all profits from the race will go to research on rare cancer. Learn more information about the race at
