Plano Balloon Festival Half Marathon & 5K
Here is a opportunity for a unique running adventure. Soaring hot air balloons show the way to an amazing day of running. Choose from three distances, the Half Marathon, 5K or 1K. Note that the half and 5K are run on different dates - check the website to confirm!
The race site is a scant 15 minutes from North Dallas. The Half Marathon begins at the base of Collin Country Community College and Oak Point Nature Preserve then winds through the neighborhoods for the first half of the race. Runners then enter Bob Woodruff Park and Oak Point Nature Preserve and finally wind back to the road separating the community college from the nature preserve, and on to the finish.
