COURSE

The course is very rocky and has several steep sections. The weather is expected to be in the low 60s and mid-80s with an estimate of 10-20mph winds. West Texas weather is very unpredictable. Regardless of the weather conditions, we will continue to race unless life-threatening circumstances occur. We will send out emails as the event gets closer on weather conditions and what to expect. Trail gators are recommended.

This race is a cupless race so please come with your own water carrying system whether that's a running vest, camelback, or hand-held water bottles/cups. We do not tolerate littering. One of our biggest values is being environmentally friendly. Help keep the environment maintained to its natural state without hurting the animals and plants that live there.
