TEXAS RACE SERIES
While we are all in this together, it can be easy to forget that we are truly still a part of a community. Businesses are shut down, schools are closed, and I have gotten really good at the "hide" part of hide & seek when I play with my kids. It truly seems like everything from concerts to graduations have been canceled, leaving little to look forward to this year.
Fortunately - Running isn't Cancelled!
Join us for a not-so-virtual race series in Hays County to remember not only that you are a part of a community, but also to push yourself towards new goals during this difficult time.
These aren't your average races, because we have no idea what we're doing and figuring it out as we go, but we guarantee fun and safety!
*** Please note that the dates have changed***
Who said we have to have everything figured out right away?
Due to overwhelming feedback, we have decided to move the races back about three weeks to give people to make plans to attend. We will also be releasing a training plan created with input from elite level runners and area coaches. This training plan will help guide even the most fearful towards a goal that might seem out of reach - a half marathon! Yes, you really can do it!

About the series
This race series is set up to provide monthly race goals to progress through during the summer. Walk, run, skip, just push yourself and conquer that goal! All races will be held in person on the dates provided, but the distances can also be completed virtually (with a few caveats). In addition to four progressive distance races, we will also put on an OCR, or obstacle course race, as a part of the series! This will be a 3-4 mile race with obstacles that must be completed during the race. Think sandbag carries, burpees, tire drag, and feel free to suggest your own!
We will do our best to have events for the kids as well at each race! 1/4 mile and mile races will be offered!
Your race entry will get you access to all five races! You will also get a race shirt, race bib, and race stickers, along with a swag bag full of local coupons and support from the community. Every finisher of all 5 events will receive a race medal upon completion of the half marathon! We will have simple timing and post-race refreshments at each event, but don't expect too much - we are trying to keep this super simple and just have fun. We're not trying to make any money, but want to provide a fun opportunity for the community.
We are very aware of the difficulties associated with community events at this time and will be taking many precautions to mitigate that risk. Please see our FAQs for more information.
