New courses this year
We've run the same course for 11 years. Time to change. We will still have the beauty of Dallas in early spring, but we are removing much of the hills and rolling course with the full marathon. Flat as we can possibly make it. Come run your fastest time ever at Big D! We will be embracing the beauty of White Rock Lake! We would be delighted to have your participation!

Two Finisher Medals at Big D!
One to show and one to wear!
Big D - The name says it all!
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
Big D - See the great iconic landmarks that dot our course. We start next to Big Texas Circle on the historic Texas State Fairgounds. Great old 20th century archecture 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.
