March 25th Rock & Roll Marathon
Set for its 9th annual running in 2018, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas Half Marathon and Two-Person Relay saw nearly 10,000 runners cross the finish line last year, along a course that features many of the Big D’s best-known places to see and visit, from Dealey Plaza and the Sixth Floor Museum to the legendary Cotton Bowl football stadium.
The race begins in downtown Dallas at the intersection of Young Street and Lamar Street, near the Dallas Convention Center, Lubben Plaza Park and Pioneer Plaza. From there, the course winds its way through downtown along Canton and Commerce Streets, and then heads through John F. Kennedy Plaza and Dealey Plaza by the mile 4 marker.
The course heads back and forth across the Trinity River so gear up for exciting run. Once they make it back across the river, runners head north along Dragon Street and Oak Lawn Avenue, through Dallas’s Design District and Oaklawn, which features the race’s biggest hill between miles 10 and 11.
