DALLAS, TEXAS – February 28, 2013 – Time is running out for runners hoping to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dallas Half Marathon with a partner for the 2-person half marathon relay distance, which splits the 13.1-mile course into two legs—7.1 and 6-miles. The half marathon and 2-person relay are set to return on Sunday, March 24, 2013.
Relay participants will be treated to all of the half marathon perks including a commemorative finisher’s medal, Brook’s technical participant tee, swag bag and most importantly a rockin’ half marathon memory. Limited to 400 teams, relay participants will enjoy part of the fast and scenic course that will highlight a perfect mix of Dallas’ metropolitan downtown, urban areas, and charming neighborhoods such as Highland Park. The race will culminate with an energetic finish line festival at Fair Park for both half marathon and relay participants, including a headlining performance by singer-songwriter Andy Grammer.
“Runners of all capabilities can enjoy the half marathon experience by grabbing a partner and running part of the scenic 13.1-mile course through Dallas,” said Alan Culpepper, Event Director and two-time Olympian. “We expect to reach capacity in the coming week and welcome runners to grab a friend and join us for the relay portion of the event while they still can. If space fills up for the relay, you can invite a friend to run the entire half marathon course together as we expect to keep the half marathon registration open online until March 17 and likely onsite at the Health & Fitness Expo. ”
Additionally, families looking to keep their kids active can sign up them for ING KiDS ROCK Dallas, which takes place on Saturday, March 23 at 9:00 am in Fair Park. More than 700 children will discover that fitness can be fun at the start line of the non-timed, non-competitive 1-mile ING KiDS ROCK Dallas event. After weeks of training, children in grades K-7 will run the “final mile” in their race to become ING KiDS ROCK marathoners. Race day is the culmination of a school-based running program designed to tackle childhood obesity through prevention, but children who haven’t participated in the program are still encouraged to register for the 1-mile fun run.
Race weekend kicks off with a free Health & Fitness Expo, where runners can find more than 80 vendors, interactive clinics with running experts and elite athletes, and much more. The Expo takes place at the Dallas Convention Center in Hall C on Friday, March 22 from 12 pm to 6 pm and Saturday, March 23 from 9 am to 5 pm. The Expo is free and open to the public.
