The main loop will contain a large amount of non-technical, scenic trail that will allow you to look around and enjoy the beauty of Texas Hill Country. Expect significant exposure = minimal shade. It will be hot! (Glen Rose avg: high 89F, low 65F)

THE COURSE HAS CHANGED IN 2021! The 10K and the half marathon will not be tackling the Rusty Crown this year.

10K Course – 1 out-and-back loops of scenic single track trail and fire road with rolling hills.

Half Marathon Course – 2 out-and-back loops of the 10K course (plus a small further out-and-back from the furthest point in the course to complete the distance).

50K ULTRA VERTATHON Course – The 50Kers will not only get to “Bow to the Crown” by experiencing the Rusty Crown. They will spend all day on their hands and knees in reverence to the Crown. They will enjoy scenic trails and fire road and rolling hills for 5K as they head out to the Rusty Crown. Then they will complete a 1.66 mile loop of climbing up and down the Crown FIFTEEN TIMES.That’s 40K of hill repeats. Then it’s still a 5K run, walk, slog, crawl to the finish line.

It’s rugged. It’s steep. It’s technical. The climbs are exposed and reflective white rock that gets hot. It’s September in Texas so will be hot and humid. It’s no joke! Put your head down and just get it done!
