Big D – The name says it all!

This is your opportunity to run one of the most scenic courses in America! Start and end on the historic grounds of the great State Fair of Texas. Begin and end your journey in the shadow of the Cotton Bowl. The marathon course will be mostly flat with one hill near mile 3. You will enjoy the beauty of White Rock Lake and return on our new Sante Fe Trail.
