Because it straddles the state line between Texas and Arkansas, the Run The Line Half Marathon course takes runners across two states during the race, hence the its title, “Run The Line.” Runners start the 13.1-mile course in downtown Texarkana, Texas, and run a counter-clockwise loop through the city, heading first into Arkansas right after the start. After about the first mile along Broad, the course turns left onto the Nix Creek Trail, which takes runners off-road and onto the trail’s paved surface. The second half of the race brings runners back into Texas, while the finish line lies in Arkansas.
