Those less rigorous, just-for-fun events are now part of the Saturday lineup that precedes Sunday’s marathon, half-marathon and five-person marathon relay.

Hopefully the just-for-fun events will expand into many aspects of fitness and endurance, building interest, participation and prestige for the World Class Marathon.

The number one feature of the Big Four (Berlin, London, Chicago and Tokyo) is that they are flat and fast. The Dallas course is way too hilly. Compare https://www.bmwdallasmarathon.com/marat ... se-Map.pdf to https://www.strava.com/running-races/20 ... o-marathon. Across the entire 26.2 miles the elevation difference between the highest and lowest point in Chicago is 8 meters. In Dallas you've got more than that in the first half mile.
