Click to go to the web site for the The Big D Texas Marathon in Dallas, Texas

This is one of the most beautiful marathon courses you will ever run. We may be a bit prejudiced because we love the beauty of Dallas, Texas when it is in early spring bloom. All the trees and shrubs will be in full foliage with all the flowering plants in spring bloom. We have designed our course so you can see Dallas at its' finest.

You start and end on the historic grounds of the great State Fair of Texas. The fairground's art deco architecture and stunning landscape will set the mood of the day. Once you leave the State fairgrounds you head north and you soon run into the beautiful neighborhoods surrounding the crown jewel of central Dallas, White Rock Lake. In addition to the beauty of the Rock, where all Dallas' runners go to do their long runs, the beautiful and luxurious homes are a vision. Once you leave White Rock you head into a part of the course that will have tree-lined parks on one side and beautiful homes on the other. As you head into the final stages of the marathon in the last six miles is where the really great homes will greet you. Your trip down Swiss Avenue is the best! And as you head to the finish line you return to finish on the front steps of the historic Cotton Bowl. You'll see why we love Dallas, Texas!
