With rolling hills, stream crossings, pastures and a section that runs up along the Lampasas River, you’ll be enjoying the hill country with a bunch of amazing fellow trail runners!The race day will be concluded with our first annual beer mile! The beer mile isn’t for the faint of heart but will include a series of drinking 4 twelve-ounce beers and running 4 quarter-mile loops around the camp meadow. As long as you’re 21 or older, you can join in the fun! Are you up for the challenge?The weekend isn’t only about these trail races! We will also have food trucks, a beer trailer on the property in the afternoon and into the evening. Don’t forget the live band at 7 pm!

Course/Map 

The 50km race proves to be a two-loop course with a mix of technical rocky sections and flatter open sections. The 25k and 25k ruck will be along the same course with one-loop that follows along the outskirts of the property and winds through more technical hills and single-track portions. The 5k and 10k course follows the same start and finish as the 50 and 25k, but with a ‘little’ bit cut off. The 5k loop has its own fun with twists and turns and a nice steady climb closer to the end! Come test your trail running abilities whether it be your first-go or your 100th! We can’t wait to see you on the trail!

Ruck

Rucks are a unique way to challenge the body and they test one's limits in a way that running alone does not.  Here are some guidelines we keep to ensure that competition is fair and consistent between competitiors:

 

  • A ruck sack (these can come in many forms, but need to be sturdy enough to carry some independent weight along with any other nutrition and gear for the run)

  • If you weigh under 150lbs, we will require a 20lb weight.

  • If you weigh over 150lbs, we will require a 35lb weight.

  • Mandatory ruck weigh in will take place prior to the start when you pick up your timing chip, and at the finish line.

  • Weight cannot be anything consumable or wearable like food or water or clothing. But pretty much anything else goes.

  • The mandatory amount of weight cannot be on the shoulders or chest. It must be on your back.

  • No sling bags or duffel bags or anything like that.

  • Any type of backpack (ruck) is acceptable otherwise.

  • Trekking poles will be allowed for this event. 

  • You can carry additional gear and supplies like food, water and clothing (and you should), but that will be additional weight.
