Azle Lake Run
The Azle Lake Run has been a primary event in the Azle community for 39 years. A portion of the proceeds are shared among local charities such as the Azle Community Caring Center, Eagle Mountain Pregnancy Help Center, and other ministries of the Azle Area Ministerial Alliance.
From the seasoned runner to the beginner, the Azle Lake Run offers four different event
levels of varying challenges for all.
*Half Marathon (13.1 miles)
*5k (3.1 miles)
*1 Mile Fun Run
Set for its 39th annual running in 2020 through the streets of this small city that lies just a short drive from nearby Fort Worth and the Dallas metropolitan area, the Azle Lake Run features a half marathon, 9.9K, 5K and one-mile fun run, all of which will start and finish at Azle’s Ash Creek Park in 2020 (due to Covid19 restrictions).
The race takes runners on a winding, out-and-back route through Azle which lies along the western edge of Eagle Mountain Lake.
Race Weather & Climate
On race day (Nov. 14, 2020), Azle typically sees an average low of 46ºF and an average high 68ºF.
The Azle Lake Run is one of the few half marathon events in the nation which permits pets on the course with their owners.
Animals should be current with their vaccinations and keep their owners on a leash. Water will be provided on the courses for all our furry friends. Pets who run the half marathon will receive their own finisher's medal.
Some proceeds from the event go to the Azle High School Marching Green Pride Band and its booster club. Band members assist with the race and provide musical entertainment along the course.
