EXPERIENCE THE COLONY HALF MARATHON AND 5 MILER: Sign up quick! The Last four years have sold out. The city of The Colony and The Colony Roadrunners Club proudly invite you to run the 2021 The Colony Half and Green Dragon 5 Miler (TC Half) on October 23, 2021. More than 50 percent of this 13.1 mile course runs along The Colony's shoreline trail on beautiful Lake Lewisville. Participants will enjoy a gently undulating, crushed granite trail in a picturesque and natural setting that promises a memorable race experience for all.
GOT BLING? HERE IS YOUR REWARD: All half marathon runners will receive a finisher's medal. We will also award custom trophies to the men and women overall winners and masters winners. Additional awards include custom trophies for all age groups for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place age group winners.
Every participant receives a high quality race shirt commemorating the event. Hydration stations will be ample across the course to ensure each runner is hydrated.
We are most proud of the TC Half sponsors, supporters and volunteers, without whom we could not put on this 100 percent volunteer-organized legacy event! Net proceeds of the TC Half support cancer patients and research for cures through our designated cancer fighting non-profit organization, AngelsFallUp.
