“We are pleased to provide another substantial donation to Texas Scottish Rite, a hospital that does such important work in our community, region and state,” said Kevin Snyder, chairman of the Dallas Marathon board of directors. “The Dallas Marathon board looks forward to continuing our strong partnership with the hospital in 2013 and beyond.”

IMG_0056.JPGIn its 33rd year, the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) Club Challenge was about due for some good weather after years of cold, dreary start lines -- and on Sunday, February 24th, 2013, local runners were shocked and pleased to line up amidst sunny skies and cool (but not too cool) 42-degree air.

Though the weather for the 2013 race had changed, the race course’s reputation as a “crazy hilly course” had not. Runners were eager to tackle a series of steep hills among a windy, wide course -- and compete for their local running club with each step.
