"Based on the positive feedback we received from the competitors of the inaugural McKinney Mini, we felt it was important to bring back the event for another year and truly make the race McKinney’s Better Half," GETRACING.ORG owner Michelle Huddleston said. "We feel that this can grow and become a large-scale event that showcases The Beach at Craig Ranch and the award-winning city of McKinney."
Last year’s winners established the course records: Female - Lauren Barnett 1:21:57.8 and Male - Trapper Yates 1:21:30.3. With a certified half marathon course, USA Track & Field will recognize times from the McKinney Mini Half Marathon as official finishing times.
