This sign is right above where you will turn right to enter the ranch gate for runner parking.  Once you see it slow down, if you hit 281, you have gone too far.  The sign is located at 290 westbound (coming from Austin) right before it hits 281.  See map below.

The  entrance will be at the intersection of HWY 290 (coming from Austin) and HWY 281.  The  entrance is on the Westbound side of 290 just before hitting 281.  Look for flashing lights and Run in Texas signage.

About This Event

 5.5 Mile, 10 Mile, 20 Mile and 50K  

All races are chip timed.  The course is moderately hilly and mostly easy single-track trail and jeep roads, with a few rocky stretches. The 10 Miler runs a mostly single track loop through some hilly and rocky trails and jeep roads. The 20 mile and 50K run the same 10 mile loop multiple times, with a slight detour for the 50K each loop to get the extra mile (31) after 3 loops.  The 5.5  miler has a shortcut off of the 10 Mile route.  It cuts off around Mile 4 and picks up again near 9.



Awards will be issued for 1st Overall (M/F), 1st Master (M/F) and top 3 in each Age Group as follows: 29 and under, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and up.
