About This Event
This event will start and finish at the creek on Lighthouse Hill Ranch. A very beautiful ranch just north of Blanco which has never held a running event. This is a beautiful course starting and finishing on The Creek inside the property. “The Creek” is a 10′ deep in parts natural, spring fed swimming hole with beautiful rock formations around it. It also has a huge hot tub and waterfall. The 10 and 20 Miler will start at the creek and run 1 loop for the 10 mile, 2 loops for the 20 mile, and 3 loops for the 50K. There will be 2 water stops on each loop. This is a hilly, rocky, very scenic trail run. The distances and trail are designed to give runners traiing for ultras, marathons or 1/2 marathons a nice change of pace while still getting a great workout. Post race food trucks (food for purchase) refreshments, and beer included.

Lighthouse Hill Ranch is situated in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on over 1,630 acres. With this much land it is your own private park to enjoy. We have 3 remodeled houses available as vacation rentals and have currently finished a new one. The awesome Lighthouse. The ranch consists of rolling hills, incredible 50 mile views, and has one of the highest points in Blanco County. In addition to horses and cattle (including some Longhorns), there’s also an abundance of wildlife on the ranch, including bass, catfish, bluegill, turkey, dove, cranes, deer, coyotes, armadillos, jackrabbits, and wild pigs. The ranch has numerous springs, a 6-8 acre clear water lake system along almost 4,000 feet of rock bottomed creek, 8 ponds, several waterfalls, and over 20 miles of trails. Activities include fishing, swimming, tubing, canoeing, riding ATVs, bike riding, hiking, and riding your own horse.
