The BMW Dallas Marathon is the result of the efforts of a pioneering group of brave Dallas runners, who had the foresight to establish an annual 26.2-mile race more than 40 years ago. In 1971, Tal Morrison – the official founding father of the marathon – placed a $25 ad in Runner’s World beckoning runners from around the country to come to Dallas.
Today, the organization continues to operate as a nonprofit organization with a focus of promoting health and physical fitness through running events. Now in its 47th running, the BMW Dallas Marathon, Half Marathon & SMU Cox School of Business Relay attracts thousands of participants and spectators to Texas’ oldest running marathon and Dallas’ largest single-day sporting event. Participating in the BMW Dallas Marathon race day delivers a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved from runners to volunteers to spectators.
