About the Run

The highline run began in 2004 as the Frisco Highline run for scouting. Mr. John Q. Hammons donated the space at the Marriott hotel for the first six races. The race headquarters was transfered to the Reman building just beyond the trailhead, quite close the Marriott. Mr. Jack Stack, President of Springfield Manufacturing, donated his excellent location for the race. Tradition is that the run feature a grand marshall. Many famous marshals have attended including Mr. Hammons, Olympian Jason Pyrah, world mile record holder Jim Ryun, and last year's famous marshal Olympic cyclist and runner John Howard.
