Aid stations with h2o will be every mile. First aid available on call, water and fruit at finish.

Come and run the trail that was traveled by Native Americans, General Robert E. Lee, and numerous other historical figures that settled Texas. This race course is a good training course for individuals or teams that are training for future half or full marathons but easy enough for the novice runner or walker.
