Big D is designing new and much flatter courses for 2015! The certifcation of the course is still in process. However use the description below for reference for both the half and full.

Our marathon course has been described as one of the most beautiful marathon courses you will ever run.

Go right (SE) on Winsted Dr.

The half marathon will go up the west side of White Rock Lake for a couple of miles and then turn around and return and connect with the Sante Fe Trail which runners will take back down to Fair Park. From there they go back into Fair Park from Parry and run on Washington.
Go right on Pennsylvania.
Go right on First St. to finish line

The marathon will circle White Rock on the west side and cross to the east side at the Mockingbird pedestrian bridge. We will run along the east side until we nearly reach Garland Road at which point we will turn around and trace back the same path returning to the Sante Fe Trail and finish as the half runners did.
