If you are looking for your first trail run or to go further than ever before, come out and enjoy this beautiful course with stream crossings, pine trees, hill country flowers, and a whole lot of fun passionate folks waiting to help you reach your goal. For many, this long-standing event has become an annual occurrence that has really become a reunion of friends. We’ll be out all weekend and in no hurry to leave. Especially if the wildflowers are popping.
