Street Closures
The 2014 MetroPCS Dallas Marathon is on Sunday, December 14.
The Dallas Marathon has a new course this year, which takes runners along La Vista and Brendenwood — through Lakewood Hills — during the first half of the race, and along the Santa Fe Trail and La Vista during the second half. It appears that no neighbors will be blocked in by the marathon route, but exiting the neighborhood west on La Vista, north on Brendenwood or west on Gaston will not be possible for a good portion of that day. See the turn by turn here, and please plan accordingly on Sunday morning and afternoon, Dec. 14. Anticipate more noise as spectators cheer on the participants, and if you have some time that morning, join in to encourage these runners!
