White Rock Marathon 2008

A team from Kessler Plaza raced in the 5-Person Relay of the 2008 Dallas White Rock Marathon Presented by NexBank. The event took place on Saturday, December 14, 2008.


The 5-person relay course began and ended in Victory Park at the American Airlines Center near downtown Dallas and ran to and around scenic White Rock Lake. The 26.2-mile certified course was mostly flat with some rolling hills. Along the way, runners passed through the wooded Turtle Creek area, prestigious Highland Park, around White Rock Lake, through beautiful Lakewood and down the Swiss Avenue historical district.


The Kessler Plaza team—named Cliff Dwellers—consisted of Camilla Harris, Mario Reyna, Deanna Shelton, Jay Smith, and Nola Rae Smith. The team finished the race in 4 hours, 59 minutes and 28 seconds!
