In 2003 the Big D marathon was created. At that time there were very few marathons in Texas and we discovered we could get the domain name of texasmarathon.com. So our original name was to be The Texas Marathon. Will we were quickly informed there was already a marathon called Texas Marathon in Houston so we quickly changed our name to the Big D Texas Marathon. Our goal was to have marathon outside the confines of winter time but also be after everyone else so that we would get the leftovers. Our first year we staged only a marathon, 5k & relay. We had 1200 participants. In the ensuing years we found that most runners just referred to us as Big D and we dropped the Texas Marathon part of our name. Now 15 years later we celebrate our 15th birthday. The 5k has not been a part of Big D for years and in honor of our first year we are bringing it back. The relay not so much.
So join us to celebrate our 15th year!
