Laura Nicolescu, Co-Editor-In-Chief

The second annual Texas Big Star Half Marathon and 5K was held Saturday and featured runners of all ages and physical capabilities. What started last year as the first endurance running event for the City of Frisco continued this year with an all-new course and start/finish line.

The event, presented by the North Texas Community Giving Foundation, saw 2,000 people in attendance, more than 1,600 runners and a multitude of hard-working volunteers to make sure everything ran smoothly on the roads and on the track.

The event also featured the post-race Finisher Fest at Collin College, with vendors, refreshments and beautiful medals and runner recognition awards for the finishers.
