The course will take you on a tour of Springtime in Paris (, Texas, that is!).
You'll start in the adorable downtown square of Paris, you'll run past Paris landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Heritage Park, and you'll get some faster miles on the straight paved-asphalt trails of the Trail de Paris!
The half marathon and 5K courses will be USATF-certified before race day.

On the half marathon course, aid stations with portapotties will be roughly every 2.5 to 3 miles.
Aid Station 1 - Mile 2 - Water Only
Aid Station 2 - Miles 2.75 and 5.75 - Water and Gatorade
Aid Station 3 - Mile 7.75 - Water Only
Aid Station 4 - Mile 9.1 - Water and Gatorade
Aid Station 5 - Mile 11.9 - Water and Gatorade
Water will be at all of the aid stations. Lemon-Lime Gatorade will be at select aid stations.
Water will be handed out at the finish as well. There will not be any water at the start of the race, so bring water if you need it before the race start. If you need more hydration than these locations, this is your responsibility, and we suggest you carry a handheld water bottle or wear a fuel belt in that instance. If you need any advice on the best hydration solution for carrying fluids during your run or walk, we're happy to help - just email us and we can advise to the best of our ability and recommend places where you can purchase hydration gear!
There will be one aid station with water only on the 5K course.
There is a 4 hour time limit for the half marathon. Those maintaining a walking pace of 18:15 per mile or faster should be able to complete the event in the required time.
The course will close in sections at a 18 minute per mile pace. Once a section of the course is closed, any participants not meeting the required 18 minute per mile pace may continue but will not have any course support or aid support. They may continue at their own risk. Those concerned about finishing in the time limit are encouraged to print the final course map close to race day since cones will be picked up as the course closes.
We want this to be a great community event, enjoyable for both the participants and the residents. Spectators will be encouraged not to drive into neighborhoods to spectate. Participants will be spread out, and we anticipate delays of no more than 15 minutes at the busiest times for residents. No roads on the route are completely closed. Runners will either have a lane dedicated to them or will be to the side or shoulder. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
