New Years Double - Allen, Texas

Two days of run events (New Year's Eve and New Year's Day), with technical running shirts and finisher medals for everyone. There's also a special perk for those who complete multiple running events over the two days – we know how runners love their bling!

SOLD OUT!

No more will be allowed into the race. There are no refunds or deferrals if you now find you can't make the race.

The deadline for distance changes, shirt size changes, and corral changes has passed.

Reminder: Banditting this race, giving your bib to someone else, and having an unregistered runner pace you for any distance will result in disqualification and a potential ban from future The Active Joe events. We monitor this closely. Please encourage others to follow all the rules of the race. Breaking the rules is disrespectful to everyone who paid their entry fee and work hard to follow the race policies! Review our policies here...

Let's all get ready for another fun year of the Double!!

In 2011, this race started as Allen's first half marathon, on New Year's Day; it was small and sold out very early. The race has increased its participant limit each year and still sold out weeks in advance. So get ready for another opportunity to end the year the active way with us, and start the next one in celebration as well!

December 31, 2014 – morning
New Year’s Eve Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K

Join us as we celebrate the end of a wonderful year. Applaud yourself for completing the year the active way – regardless of whether it was a year where you spent the entire time making running and walking a part of your lifestyle, or you spent the last 8 weeks training for your first 5K! The point is that it was still an active year!

All finishers will receive a finisher medal commemorating that day’s event.

January 1, 2015 – morning
New Year’s Day Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K

Then come back the next day and celebrate starting the new yearthe best way possible – the active way! Who could think of a better way to start the new year than with a thousand other runners and walkers?!?

And for locals, this still means you can enjoy ringing in the New Year at midnight. The shorter distance starts early, but the longer distance event has a nice later start time, and it’s conveniently located in Allen with parking right at the start/finish line. So ring in the new year and hop into bed – many of you can still enjoy 6-7 hours of sleep!

All finishers will receive a finisher medal commemorating that day’s event.

New Years Double Challenge Plate

For those who complete certain combinations of events on BOTH days, both New Year’s Eve morning and New Year’s Day morning, there will be a special challenge finisher medal. The Challenge Plate will actually integrate with your two existing individual medals you received at each day’s event.
