Watch Dallas come alive as the sun goes down. Voted the best skyline in the world by USA Today, the Urban Ultra showcases some of the best views of Dallas.
The only race that is run entirely on the Skyline trail, racers experience electric views while running on a flat fast loop course consisting mostly of pavement with a small portion of gravel road.
The course is run at night so be sure to bring a headlamp. This race is a great opportunity for a PR and is designed to allow road runners to crossover and get the trail experience.
