Texas > Rock & Roll Dallas Half Marathon
Dallas, TX • Sunday, March 24, 2013 • Course Map • Series Calendar
The series of Rock & Roll themed marathon and half marathon events returns to Dallas in the spring of 2013 with the third annual running of Texas's Rock & Roll Dallas Half Marathon & 2-Person Relay, which saw more than 11,000 runners, relay team participants and wheelchair competitors cross the finish line at the race's 2012 running.
Runners follow an upside-down, U-shaped point-to-point course at the Rock & Roll Dallas Half Marathon, which starts near the Dallas Convention Center and finishes at the famed Cotton Bowl football stadium. In between, runners make their way through the Highlands Park neighborhood, past a pair of local parks and past the campus of Southern Methodist University.
The new race will benefit the Susan G. Komen Marathon for the Cure program, which raises money for the fight against breast cancer in races across the country. Note that the course described above and in the map describes the race's 2012 course; the 2013 course is subject to change and will be updated here when available.
