Race Recap: Rocket City Marathon, LA County Holiday Half, and BMW Dallas Marathon

It was another great weekend full of races! Read more about them below.

3,2,1…. BLAST OFF! For over 37 years the Rocket City Marathon has been a premiere marathon in the South. With a fast course to produce maximum performance, this Huntsville tradition was not one to miss!

The Rocket City Marathon is known for being a weekend long event. On the Friday before the race, they provided a “carbo supper” to feed about 500 racers encouraging everyone to run their best. They take pride in producing a fun-filled weekend with tons of exciting activities for the whole family.


Congratulations to all the finishers, you guys rocked it! As always, Heatsheets was ecstatic to be your finish line blanket! @ashlea1908, @inezgroff, @chrisheuisler, @sassyhippiehippo


Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow….in California? The LA County’s Holiday Half offers west coast runners a unique experience, snow at the start line and snowflake medals at the finish. They surely felt the spirit of the holiday season this past weekend!

This southern California race takes marathoners on a trail donning breathtaking views from start to finish. Runners also got a glimpse of some historic and eye-catching venues, including the oldest site on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series circuit, the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, and Brackett Airfield, home to Air Force Auxiliary Squadron 64.


Cheers to all the racers that crossed the finish line! Stay warm this holiday season (wink) and special thanks for #ShowingUsYourHeatsheets! @deep127, @mrsti28, @grass_hopper69, @one_fit_daddio


Heatsheets would like to congratulate all the runners that crossed the BMW Dallas Marathon finish line! The Dallas Marathon is a nonprofit organization with a focus on promoting health and physical fitness through running events and related activities.

This exclusive course full of historic landmarks, lively neighborhoods, and beautiful scenery, was just a few of the many reasons that they were named the official marathon of the city of Dallas. Fireworks and confetti rounded out this race’s tremendous start, ending with live music by Dallas’ award-winning Beatles tribute band, A Hard Night’s Day!


Thanks, to all of you for #ShowingUsyourHeatsheets, see you next December! @timjejong7, @amanda.s.berg, @loddydottle, @kevinquintero
