BMW Dallas Marathon Weekend at Downtown Dallas
Brentney Hamilton Recommends
All hail Dallas' love letter to its vibrant and thriving running community. All year, locals faithfully "loop" the lake or charge up the M Streets in preparation for feats across the country. But, in December, the spotlight turns to us. Can't run 26.2? Don't want to? Fair enough. Join in by cheering from your front yard, a great bar patio or one of the historic landmarks along the list. Pen a saucy sign or hand out toilet paper -- trust us, runner's will take a little TP anytime.
The weekend starts with the Health and Fitness Expo at Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 8 and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 9. The two-day event will be filled with merchandise, information and exhibits related to the running, fitness and health industries. It will also serve as the official packet pick-up location for all runners. Admission is free.
For 2017, the marathon weekend expands to include the Dec. 9 Coors Light 5K and 10K, which will start and finish in downtown Dallas.
