Don't Quit 13.1 Course

Flat, concrete trail, with lots of shade! Set near White Rock Lake, both the half marathon and 5K will run on a shaded concrete/park trail that starts & finishes at one of the coolest watering holes at White Rock Lake in Dallas. It's an out and back course that will be well marked, easy to run and a great way to get some training miles in or a long run! If it's your first half marathon, you'll get to see lots of smiling faces both out and back on the course too. Water and electrolyte replacement aid stations will be located every 2 miles on the half marathon course and at the turn of the 5K course. Run or walk, you'll enjoy this route!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • REFUNDS & CANCELLATIONS

    The event does not offer any refunds or cancellations. We recommend you purchase race insurance in the event you are not able to attend the event.

  • Transfers

    Transfers from one division to another division or from one person to another are available for a limited time for an additional fee of $15.00, which is available through September 25th, 2017. There are no transfers after this date, no exceptions.

  • HALF MARATHON COURSE TIME LIMIT

    The course time limit is 3.5 hours. Please only register if you are able to complete all 13.1 miles within 3 ½ hours (equals 16:00 minute per mile pace) or faster. Finishers after this time will be required to run/walk on the sidewalk, and the streets will not be closed and controlled by police. Therefore, you will need to use crosswalks and must wait for traffic. The finish line, however, will remain open until the last finisher completes the race.

  • STROLLERS & DOGS ON COURSE

    Strollers are allowed but please line up in the back, yield to runners, and do not weave through other participants while on the course. Well-behaved dogs who are trained for large groups, are socially trained and can participate in a group setting are allowed. For the half marathon, only well-trained dogs trained to run long distance should be allowed to participate (this is up to owner discretion). However, if course officials see that your dog is not able to finish the distance, we will transport you and your dog to the finish line. It is your responsibility to clean up after your pet. Water bowls and water will be available for dogs at all water stops and at the finish line.

  • MINIMUM AGE FOR HALF MARATHON PARTICIPATION

    Is there a minimum age requirement to run the half marathon? Although there is no official minimum age requirement for the half marathon, we recommend all half marathon participants be at least 13-years-old on race day.

Restrooms are located at the start and finish line and at every hydration station on the course. For the 5K, there will be a hydration station at mile 1.5 on the course. For the half marathon, hydration stations will be located at mile 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and the start and finish line. Mile markers will be visible at every mile on the course for both distances.
