Runners will once again get the chance to run The American Dream City as registration is now open for the Lone Star Half Marathon and Mayor’s 5K on Sunday, April 23, 2017 and for the first time, the Para Invitational on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

The Lone Star Para Invitational is the only Pre-K through 12 UIL competitive track and field meet for children with physical disabilities in Texas. The event will be sponsored and hosted by the Arlington Independent School District Athletic Department at Cravens Field, located at 1400 W Lamar Arlington, TX, 76012.

Athletes will compete in either wheelchair or ambulatory divisions upon classification.

The Lone Star Half Marathon and Mayor’s 5K will start and finish at the Levitt Pavilion in Downtown Arlington. Proceeds from the Mayor’s 5K go to Arlington ISD Athletics Adaptive Sports.

The race will take the runners north to the entertainment district, through Lincoln Square, past Texas Health Resources Arlington Memorial Hospital, and loop them around the beautiful campus of The University of Texas at Arlington. Runners will truly get a tour of The American Dream City.

It is the mission of the Lone Star Half Marathon and Mayor’s 5K to provide a competitive running event for people of mixed abilities.
