GE Irving Marathon in Valley Ranch

The 2014 GE Irving Marathon course visited parts of Valley Ranch in early Spring. Take a look at what fun the volunteers had. Maybe we’ll see you next year!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The GE Irving Marathon stated and ended at the Irving Convention Center. This was a full 30K marathon, and a qualifying run for the Boston Marathon. The full 30k runners entered Valley Ranch using the Campion Trail bridge. The half-way point was inside Valley Ranch. Several streets were blocked off for the runners, and the Irving Police did a terrific job of managing the pedestrian and automobile traffic at the busy intersection of Mac Aurthur and Cowboy Way. Runners were encouraged and greeted by eager volunteers at several comfort stations along the way throughout Valley Ranch.
