About this Event

This is a San Antonio original trail event.  Start and finish at Classic Elite Soccer Complex and run on the trails of McAllister Park.   The actual start is on top of the dam south of the police station for those who know the trails.  It is about 1/4 mile from packet pickup and the finish at the Classic Elite soccer fields.  The finish is inside of the soccer complex.  The 10K will start at 9PM and the 5K will start at 9:05.   The course runs through heavily wooded dirt trails in the pitch dark.  The 5K and 10K run completely different routs except for the last 1/2 mile where they joing together. A flashlight or headlamp is required and extremely necessary. The trails can be very rocky with tree roots in places, as well as low branches so paying attention is critical. There are many opportunities to fall. This is not a trail run for beginners. It is up to you to provide your own lighting so you do not take a spill or run into a branch. Trails are marked with signage and glow sticks in the trees. Glow sticks guide you along the trail but do not by any stretch illuminate the ground, so make sure you have a good headlamp and/or flashlight. All runners will receive a tech shirt and post race beer (for those of age).  This is a fun run.  NO AWARDS will be given but overall results will be posted at the event and online.

4 Person Team Division

You may register a four person team.  The 1st overall team will win the competition.  There is no male, female, mixed or age groups.  Just one lucky team will take home 4 awesome etched mugs.   If you want to mail in your team entry, all competitors must fill out and sign the entry form.
