Come run the oldest half marathon in Texas! In 2017, we have lots to celebrate, especially as the 2017 RRCA National Half Marathon Championship race. We can't wait to host you all and show you a little of our White Rock Lake hospitality in November!
The Dallas Running Club Half Marathon, lovingly referred to locally as “The Half”, was originally organized in 1976 to fill a niche between the 10K and marathon distances. This event now stands as a fixture on the racing calendar and a premier running event in the North Texas area. The DRC Half Marathon is one of the oldest half marathons in the US and is well-attended by elite runners, casual runners, run-walkers and walkers. With its scenic lakeside course and traditionally good weather conditions, this race is a final goal for some or a test of endurance for those preparing for a winter marathon.
The race is organized by the Dallas Running Club, the largest all-volunteer running and walking organization in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and the one of the largest running clubs in the United States. We welcome runners and walkers of all ages, shapes, sizes and skill levels. The club’s mission is to unite runners of every level of ability and interest, promote good health, friendship, camaraderie and training ideas, while encouraging participation in all types of running events and focusing our key club-sponsored races towards supporting charitable causes, specifically, the Tal Morrison Scholarship Fund.
