Mason, Texas, about 100 miles from Austin, San Angelo, and San Antonio, will hold its Eighth annual Gem of the Hill Country 5 & 10k on September 27, 2014 @ 8:00am. 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.
|Course:||The 5K & 10K runs take place on mostly paved roads(1/4 mile dirt). The race starts and finishes near Mason's Library. The 10K is an up and back course. The 5K follows the same route but turns on Post Hill at the 2 mile point. The course is scenic and far from flat with a few challenging hills thrown in for fun. Aid stations with h2o will be every mile. First aid available on call, water and fruit at finish.|
