Welcome to the 46th Annual DRC's The HALF (half marathon, 10K & 5K)

For over four decades, this race has been a celebration of our running home - White Rock Lake - and its beautiful trails. After last year's Covid-19-affected-virtual event, we are bringing back the usual party at Norbuck Park - a race that is a testament to your passion, your training, and your commitment to health. At this time, DRC is permitted to host a  live event; however, the City may change this at any time if they deem necessary for health and safety reasons. Should that happen the event will convert to into a virtual event just like 2020, and refund the difference in fees. 

DRC’s The HALF benefits the Tal Morrison Scholarship Fund. 

So join the Dallas Running Club on Sunday, November 7th at Norbuck Park (200 N. Buckner Blvd., Dallas, TX 75218)
