In the weeks leading up to the Big Star kickoff on November 14, 2020, the BSHM committee will be sharing challenges for runners in both the Half Marathon & the 5K for completion during your training for this year’s event.

All challenges will be based on industry-standard training plans &, if chosen, can serve as terrific metrics for your preparedness for the 2020, & eventually 2021, Big Star events.


In the coming week, BSHM will announce several Half Marathon & 5K routes around the DFW-area for participants.

We are also happening to have some exciting options to announce for runners in the Frisco area.

Lastly, runners are welcome to complete any route of their choosing that also covers the distance of their chosen event.


All proceeds from the Texas Big Star race go to support local charities.

Since its inception, Big Star has donated more than $250,000 to more than 40 local charities.

Run for you and run for our community.
