The Colony Half Marathon and Green Dragon 5 Miler

Saturday, October 28, 2017,  8am gun time

You don't want to miss this running party going on for our 5th year.  Last years race was a sell out!   Fast, flat, and beautiful shoreline trail, after race party with great swag, food and drinks, and all for an AWESOME CAUSE!  All proceeds go to support cancer awareness.  


About The Colony Half

EXPERIENCE THE COLONY HALF :  The City of The Colony & The Colony Roadrunners Club proudly invite you to run the "2017 The Colony Half and Green Dragon 5 Miler"  on Oct 28, 2017.  Over 50% of this 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.  

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!  

Green Dragon 5 Miler

We dedicate the 5 miler to The Colony Half Founder and our running friend for life, Ron Rosetti.  A friend to the running community and the visionary that started our charity partner Angelfallsup and the Half Marathon, Ron's legacy lives on. 

The 5 miler starts within the Park on the same course as the Colony Half, entering Stewart Peninsula Neighborhood and turning back into the park as the Half Marathoners enter the trail. 

The Green Dragon participants receive thier very own shirt, unique to the race and age group awards.  5 milers will not receive finisher medals.
