Scenes from The White Rock, the Classiest Marathon in Town

The running of this year's White Rock Marathon, as in past years, was rich with stories of inspiration, endurance, and, um, weather.

But here at Unfair Park we're much more interested in the real story: the balloon-breasted, the beer-swilling, and the folks dressed like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or pieces of fruit.

Congratulations to all who ran the Rock, especially Kenyans Edward Tabut (2:16:53) and Rose Jebet (2:48:21) who cruised through the finish line ahead of everyone else. Now on to the costumes and signs, in our slide show from photographer Caity Colvard.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
