History of the Lake Benbrook Half Marathon & 5K:
An out-and-back race with hills scattered throughout virtually the entire course, the event starts and finishes in Dutch Branch Park near the top of the lake, and takes runners on a course that offers ample views of the lake from several different vantage points.
Thanks both to its terrain and the time of year the race is held, the conditions and the course can make for a challenging run — runners must navigate both the hills of the park areas surrounding Lake Benbrook as well as the event’s often cold, windy and sometimes rainy conditions.
Participants run on paved surfaces throughout the reservoir area’s parks, including Dutch Branch, Holiday Park and Mustang Park.
The starting time for runners in both the half marathon is at 8:00 AM and the 5K race is 8:15 AM, and the starting location is the baseball facility just south of the YMCA, inside Dutch Branch Park. Participants can get to the park via either Interstate 20 or I-30 from nearby Fort Worth, by taking the exit for Highway 183 South and following it to Winscott Road.
