    Difficulty:
    — This course was a piece of cake. Great for a PR. Fast, flat, and fun!

    Scenery:
    — The stretches over the bridge were really pretty, especially at sunrise!! Other areas…not so much. But Dallas is a concrete jungle, so that’s to be expected. The bridge(s) made up for it, though!

    Race production:
    — Several volunteers weren’t able to answer my questions; a bit frustrating. Not super organized, but with it only being a half marathon, it wasn’t too big of a deal. After party was great! Very crowded, though!

    Race swag:
    — Liked the medal and shirt!!

    Overall:
    — I would recommend to a friend & definitely will run again next year!

    Great race! The volunteers and staff were wonderful. Dallas Police did a great job blocking roads and keeping cars away from runners. They were all very nice and supportive.
    The course itself is beautiful, there are two big hills, but they are manageable.
    Aid stations are frequent and well stocked.
    Great after party with cold towels. Loved the shirt and medal.
    Will be back!

    I have ran this race for 3 years in a row. The race takes place right near downtown Dallas. Good views, especially as you run over the bridges crossing the Trinity River. Speaking of bridges, they can be tough, the inclines make it enough of a challenge. Race swag is good, the shirt is one of the few I rotated into my regular clothes (I run so many races, it’s hard to crack the every day wear these days!). Medal is very nice! I would definitely recommend running this race at least once.

    The 2021 Skyline Half Marathon was an in person race, but it was re-scheduled from April to September. I had to run it virtually because I was out of town the weekend of the race, so my review is based on my virtual experience not the in person experience.

    Other than the debris on the bridges, this was a great race. Well organized, beautiful views. The 4 bridges made for some difficult inclines. Nice medals. Nice shirts. Run Project always produces a top-notch event. I will run this one again.

    Registration and pre-race communication was ok. I feel like they could have sent a few more emails. I kept looking for information on packet pick up and instructions on Facebook or the website. Feel like they always had 2017 info listed.

    Race day was fairly smooth. I didn’t have issues parking, but if you get there later in the morning I’m sure parking might have been tough to find. Packet pick up was uneventful, but the line did get long close to the start, so maybe having a few more people checking runners in would have been good. A few more port-a-lets would have been nice also. The audio was tough to hear in the back of the starting line. I couldn’t even hear the national anthem. The course was nothing spectacular and it’s a similar course to many other runs held in this area. It’s a very popular spot for races. The course was well marked and security was plentiful.

    Post race was nice, but I had to search for water after the race. I finally ran up to a vendor and asked them for some water, because I couldn’t find any.

    The shirt is nice, but a women’s cut would have fit better. The medal is on par with other races of this length and price. Not sure what I’ll do with the socks.

    Overall, it’s a no frills type race that’s not too difficult. Some upgrades needed, but not a bad race to run.

    The course runs along the Trinity River with some scenic views – mostly of the various bridges that cross the Trinity. The course was average difficulty and, relatively flat. Two water stations were adequate for the 10k and were well staffed. I was disappointed that, at the end of the race, food & beverage did not include any bottled water. Overall – I would do this race again.
