The new 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.

Heading west on HWY 290, you will see this sign right before the entrance to the ranch. The entrance will be on your right about 30 feet after you go under this sign.

About This Event

This is a scenic, challenging trail run at Lighthouse Hill Ranch, a private 2,000+ acre ranch in the beautiful Texas Hill Country just north of Blanco. The course starts and finishes The Creek, a natural, spring fed swimming hole with beautiful rock formations that is 10′ deep in parts.  A huge outdoor hot tub and waterfall are also at the finish line, making it the perfect place for a post-race soak. The 10-mile loop course is repeated twice for the 20 mile race and 3 loops (plus a little extra) for the 50k.  There will be 2 water stops on each loop; water, sports drink and food will be available on the course.  This is a hilly, rocky and scenic trail run, providing great training ultras, marathons or 1/2 marathons a nice change of pace while still getting a great workout.  A food truck will be on site after the race; purchase a meal in advance or pay at the finish line. Good craft beer included. Finisher medals for all distances. Runners must complete their distance within 8 hours.
