Texas Half and 5K to be Held in Irving

The 12th annual Texas Half and 5K run will take place February 2, at the Irving Convention Center. With around 1,200 runners, the course is mostly flat with running surfaces that combine the Campion Trail pathway, with some asphalt and concrete. There is a time limit of three-and-a-half hours. Both the Texas Half and 5K use chip timing technology in the bib to precisely record times from start to finish. Disposable timing tags come with bib number and race packet. Everyone crossing the finish line in the half-marathon will receive an event jacket and finisher medal. Runners in the 5K will receive a T-shirt. Event packets can be picked up Feb 1 at select Academy Sports locations, or on race day at the event.

Walkers are welcome to participate. Water and aid stations, port-o- lets and race personnel will be stationed throughout the course. Parking is free. The half-marathon begins at 8 a.m., followed by the 5K at 8:15. The 5K run starts and ends at the half marathon finish line at the convention center. Post-race festivities will be held in the convention center at 9 a.m. with the award ceremony beginning at 9:30.

Location: 500 W. Las Colinas Blvd., Irving. For more information on registration, packet pick-up and pricing, call 817-706-0368 or visit TexasHalf.com
