Go Big! Run Big! Do Big Things

For 13 years we have been crazy about Big D. We try not even spelling out what the D stands for. We all know you only need to say Big D.

Big D is a great marathon & Half marathon
that is run in the spring time. Everything is luscious and green and fresh flowers and beauty is everywhere.
We run Big D! A big city with a Big D welcome mat!


We add these unique features not available anywhere else.

We are not a gigantic impersonal event. You will not have to contend with 20,000 other people at the crack of dawn trying to find parking and when you get to the start line, you have to be put in holding areas. Traditionally we have 2500 run the half and 1000 run the full marathon.

Parking! Tons of free parking just blocks from our start finish line.

Convenient packet pickup! For local residents we have pickup nearer to where you live. And most of all we allow you to get your packet race morning at the event!


Your Finish line photo will be free along with a finisher certificate!

We are reasonably priced!
We offer superior customer service! We have a phone number that we actually answer and an email address that we respond to.

We try to recognize you at our finish line by calling out your name and recognize your effort and accomplishment.


Think Pink! We are the only event we know of that caters to women. We have pink stations at several of our water stations.

Your post race celebration takes place just a few feet from our finish line.


The Big D half marathon is part of the greatest half marathon challenge in Texas! The Four Seasons Half Challenge

Do Big D - The name says it all!


We offer you a flat fast Boston qualifier that has very few turns.
You run next to an historic lake in the middle of the city - White Rock Lake!


On top of running the most beautiful course in DFW, all registrants will receive a unique event tech t-shirt, a finisher medal and enjoy some serious post-race food and libations. Runners will also get their name called out as they cross the finish line. Big D always hosts great entertainment and vendor booths right next to the finish line.


We start & Finish next to Big Texas Circle in the heart of the Texas State Fair Grounds and in the shadow of the historic Cotton Bowl.


Big D - See the great iconic landmarks that dot our course. We start next to Big Texas Circle on the historic Texas State Fairgrounds. Great old 20th century architecture surrounds your start. As you head up towards the lake, your first 4 miles run through the old and quite honestly modest homes. When you arrive at White Rock Lake, you see running training mecca of Dallas. This year the marathon will embrace the lake and its great beauty as more than 12 miles will be run on its shores. When leaving the lake we hit the Sante Fe Trail that will cover over 4 miles returning to Fair Park. Reentering the park, we circle around inside the Park and finish on the cobblestone walk that leads past one of the Parks lagoons and we finish just feet from Big Tex Circle.


We hope you will run Big D in 2016! Join us for a great Big D celebration!
