Ascend into Spring and sign-up for early runner registration for the Plano Balloon Festival Races. Early registration for the Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, 1K, Elevate Challenge, and Sky High Challenge ends on March 31st. Starting in April the prices increase up to $15 more per distance.


The Plano Balloon Festival Races will be held Saturday, September 21, 2019 and Sunday, September 22, 2019 at the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival. The race location is at Oak Point Park and the Course Maps give details about water stations, starting/finish lines, mile markers and restrooms.


Springtime in Texas provides awesome racing weather for runners because it’s not so dang hot that you nearly melt onto the pavement! Daylight Saving Time shifts that sunrise even later. Now your morning run is an incredibly refreshing way to start the day. The main complaint runners face is the high humidity, and the daily Allergy Report that scores above a 7.5 on a regular basis.



Coming up on March 19th we’ll be unveiling the 2019 Finisher Medals and sharing images of the new custom designs for each race.  The reveal from 2018 created a lot of buzz on Facebook with more than 21,000 views! Stay tuned as we prepare to go the distance and remember to register this month before lower race fees float away! #PBFRaces
