In honor of the great contribution Tal Morrison has made to the DRC and the Dallas running community, the DRC's February race is officially called The Tal Morrison Classic and a scholarship program, Scholars On The Run, The Tal Morrison Scholarship fund, has also been organized in his name. Tal Morrison, DRC Club founder, returns every year to the race named after him to help present runners with their awards.

The Tal Morrison Scholarship Fund is a Texas non-profit charitable organization that was organized to pay tribute to and honor the contributions of Tal Morrison to the Dallas running community. A strong health and fitness advocate, Tal was a pioneer of Dallas area organized running groups and events who founded the Cross Country Club of Dallas, the White Rock Marathon, and the White Rock Half Marathon, now known as the Dallas Running Club Half Marathon (held each November).

The Tal Morrison Scholarship Fund accomplishes its charitable purpose by providing financial assistance to Dallas area high school students in the form of first year university or college scholarships. To be considered for this program, the high school student must be a graduating senior and have been an active participant in their school cross country running program. Although not required to run in a collegiate program, the applicant has demonstrated the discipline and competitiveness in the sport of cross country, which is recognized as an eligibility criteria for the scholarship. Scholarship candidates are also judged on their overall academic, athletic, and school activity performance, in addition to their essays responding to certain questions posed in the application.
