The race is SOLD OUT! We already account for potential no-shows and folks not finishing in determining all of the various resources needed for the race, so there are simply no more spots.

Please join us April 9 for the 4th annual Fairview Half Marathon. It's going to be awesome. Details here...

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 – 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 – 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.
