    The Hottest Half

    This event was so poorly supported that it is hard to believe that the Event Promoter actually does these for a living. This was basically nothing more than an out and back using the White Rock Lake running trails, with very little support provided along the way. The on-course water stops ran completely out after only a few minutes of the event...in The Hottest Half! No effort was made by the Race Director and crew to correct the situation. I have never seen so many runners collapsing and receiving emergency IV's along a race route. Fortunately the Dallas PD bike patrols were able to get emergency response vehicles in quickly to provide medical assistance. I will never participate in any event coordinated by Mellew Productions again. They risked the lives of far too many runners, and are lucky that EMS personnel could step in to avert one of more fatalities from the heat.
