One of the toughest trail runs in Texas, as well as the oldest 100km. It’s beautiful, fun, and incredibly well-supported. Beginners are welcome. Come run amongst the best trail runners in the U.S. and world. 100km, 50km, 25km.

100km will have a 500 person max and will be a standalone race on Saturday. Still with a 24 hour cutoff.
50km and 25km will have a combined max of 500 total and will start Sunday morn.

No whiners, wimps, or wusses.
A trail of rugged and brutal beauty where everything cuts, stings or bites.

Once again, we are proud to be a Western States Golden Ticket race! Top two men and women in Bandera 100km will be offered an opportunity to register for 2019 Western States.

Also, Bandera 100km and Rocky Raccoon 100 have been selected as qualifying races for the Western States 100. Runners who complete Bandera within 17 hours and Rocky within 30 hours will qualify to enter a lottery where the runners for Western States will be selected.
