About This Activity

EXPERIENCE THE COLONY HALF AND 5 MILER:  The City of The Colony & The Colony Roadrunners Club proudly invite you to run the "2016 The Colony Half and Green Dragon 5 Miler"  on Oct 22nd, 2016.  Over 50% of this USATF certified 13.1 mile course runs along The Colony's shoreline trail on beautiful Lake Lewisville.  Participants will enjoy a gently undulating, crushed granite trail in a picturesque & natural setting that promises a memorable race experience for all.  

GOT BLING?  HERE IS YOUR REWARD:  Half Marathon Finishers will receive even bigger "Texas-Sized Bling” this year including a huge 4" unique, and two-sided participant race medallion and vie for their name on the coveted “Mayor’s Cup”, put on display in The Colony City Hall after the inaugural 2016 race.  We will also award custom trophies to the men and women overall winners and masters winners.  Additional awards include custom trophies for all age groups for 1st, 2nd & 3rd place age group winners.  

Every participant receives a high quality technical race shirt commemorating the event. The shirts are bright technical wicking shirts and in both men and women sizes.   Hydration stations will be ample as will be the post-race celebration & awards ceremony including a band, prizes, pizza, snacks, fruit & choice beverages for all participants.  So much value and for such a worthy cause. 

We are most proud of The Colony Half sponsors, supporters and volunteers, without whom we could not put on this 100% volunteer organized, managed & race directed legacy event!  100% of the net proceeds support cancer patients & research for cures through our designated cancer fighting non-profit organization, AngelsFallUp.
