About The Chupacabra 5K/10K Night Trail Run

Run through the woods at night! This trail run start at 8:30PM at Lake Houston Wilderness Park, followed by a post-race party at the start / finish area. The course runs through heavily wooded dirt trails in pitch dark. A HEADLAMP OR FLASHLIGHT IS REQUIRED! It will be dark out there, so it’s up to you to provide your own quality lighting.  The trails can have many tree roots and an uneven surface, so paying attention to footing is critical. Trails will be marked with glow sticks, directional arrows and tape in the trees. 

All runners will recieve a post race party, high quality tech shirt, a cool finisher medal, post race beer (for those of age), and Mingos Latin Cuisine food truck plate as part of your entry.  This is a fun run so no awards will be given but overall results and age group results will be posted.  Overnight camping is available and encouraged.
