Event Information:

Starting near Ala Moana Beach Park across from Ala Moana Center, the course progresses west along the waterfront toward downtown Honolulu, then loops through downtown and bends back east through Waikiki, around Diamond Head, and out toward the eastern suburbs of Honolulu, winding through Hawaii Kai before doubling back toward the finish line at Waikiki's Kapiolani Park. Marathoners consider the course moderately difficult because of the tropical weather conditions, with temperatures starting at around 65°F (18°C) and rising to as high as 80°F (27°C), and a relatively hilly course compared with other marathons. Nevertheless, the race also remains a popular choice for first-time marathoners.

Although the difficulty of the course precludes world-record pace performances, winners of the Honolulu Marathon have used it as a stepping stone to greater achievements. For instance, three-time winner Ibrahim Hussein of Kenya later won the Boston Marathon three times; and 1993 winner Bong-Ju Lee won the silver medal in the 1996 Olympic Marathon in Atlanta.

Event Information:

The course is both hilly and flat involving running through downtown Dallas as well as the area surrounding White Rock Lake. In recent years, it has included the Mayor's 5K race, a five person relay, and a half-marathon in addition to the traditional marathon race. The main beneficiary of the race is Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

Along with the Houston Marathon and the Austin Marathon, the Dallas White Rock Marathon forms the first leg of the Marathons of Texas, a series of winter marathons held approximately one month apart from each other from December through February in Texas.

The Mayor’s 5k Race and Fun Run will take place on the day before the marathon with a start and finish in Fair Park. These changes have been implemented to improve the overall experience at our event and build upon the reputation the White Rock Marathon has built up over the years.
