Western States Qualifier – The Brazos Bend 100 miler is a Western States qualifying race (the first qualifier for the following year’s lottery).
Event Distances: 100 Miler / 50 Miler / 26.2 Marathon / 13.1 Half Marathon
The Brazos Bend 100 Miler is the FASTEST trail in the nation with its mostly flat course and fully stocked aid stations. It’s the perfect place to set some personal records. And there are alligators! The wildlife is abundant in Brazos Bend State Park, but it’s overshadowed in general interest by the American alligator. Birds of 290 species have been sighted in and around the park. The diverse habitat is a haven for migratory waterfowl, a variety of shorebirds, wading birds, songbirds, and raptors amongst the bearded trees and waterways make for a picturesque course.
Located just south of Houston/Sugarland
