That’s the news this morning, along with the fact that the course will take runners across Large Marge. It had already been announced that the race in 2012 is going to start and finish in downtown Dallas.
The name change makes sense, I guess, since the event has had less and less to do with White Rock Lake over the years. Makes sense if they’re trying to brand the event nationally among marathon addicts enthusiasts.
But White Rock Marathon is a more interesting name, and I’m sure there are many who will miss the traditions that went with it.
