BMW Dallas Marathon Festival

December 8 - December 10


The BMW Dallas Marathon Festival is a nonprofit organization with a focus on promoting health and physical fitness through running events and related activities. Established in 1971, the history of the organization encompasses tremendous growth and produces what has become Dallas’ largest and Texas’ longest running marathon, the BMW Dallas Marathon, as well as several other weekend running and walking event options including a Half Marathon, 50K Ultra Marathon, the Shell Energy Relays, 10K, 5K, a 5K Team Challenge, the Friday Night Lights Mile and various Kids Races.

The BMW Dallas Marathon Festival courses highlight the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods, entertainment districts and iconic Dallas landmarks. Tens of thousands of spectators join in BMW Dallas Marathon Day – the second Sunday of December – lining the streets and neighborhoods to cheer on participants in a race that is recognized as the official marathon of the City of Dallas.

Since naming a primary beneficiary in 1997, the BMW Dallas Marathon Festival has donated more than $4 million to Scottish Rite for Children.
