About This Event
Start 8:30PM and Finish in the same spot at the Jackson Pavilion in Rockledge Park on Lake Grapevine. Runners will enjoy a well supported chip timed race through the
woods and dirt trails of Murrel Park. There will be 2 water stops supplied
with HEB Quench and Spring Water on trails marked with directional arrows and
glowsticks. After finishing, cool down at the finish area with cold beverages,
runners can mosey to the post race party for burgers and beer. Veggie burger
option for those who desire it. This is a fun run so there will be no awards. If
we are over 300 entrants, we will do a wave start with faster runners going out
**NEW** 5K/10K, 6 person Team Competion
We will take the average of each person's time. Fastest group average time wins. Overall winners of the team division win a medal each and a NICE Chupacabra prize for each member of the group.
This is not a run for beginners. The trails are dark with many rocks and opportunities for falling, twisted ankles, scrapes, and bruises. We will use glow sticks to mark the course but paying attention is critical. This is much different than running on the road at night much less during the day. You will need a good quality headlamp and/or flashlight(s). If you plan to run fast be alert. It is very easy to run through a well marked turn at night running slowly much less running a sub 7 min mile. YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION OR YOU WILL RUN OFF COURSE. WE WILL MARK THE COURSE VERY, VERY WELL.
10K- $45 through 3-12, $55 through 3-29, $65 after that and $70 on race day.
5K- $40 through 3-12, $50 through 3-29, $60 after that and $65 on race day.
