TEXAS RACE SERIES
Back for our fourth year, The Runfield Texas Race Series is on for 2023 and better than ever! With five progressive distances over the year, you'll be able to achieve more than you thought possible. From a 5K in March to a half-marathon in December, join us for fun along the way. You can do more than you imagine - one day at a time, one step at a time.
This year we have chip timing, medals for every race, photos, and more! These aren't your average races, but we guarantee fun and safety! Let's come together, run together, and overcome together.
Oh, and they won't get canceled! We were the first in-person races to be held after the 2020 lockdown in the state of Texas, and, thanks to a wonderful safety plan that was made in conjunction with the University of Texas School of Public Health, we will continue to put on our events.
Thank you for your support, 100% of all proceeds go directly to Outsiders Anonymous. Find out more about them here.

About the series
This race series is set up to provide monthly race goals to progress through during the year. Walk, run, skip, just push yourself and conquer that goal! 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 2-3 mile race with obstacles that must be completed during the race. Think sandbag carries, burpees, tire drag, and feel free to suggest your own!
All races will be held in person on the dates provided, but the distances can also be completed "virtually". Our virtual races aren't the typical "run wherever" virtual race where you never get to see how you fare against the competition on race day... rather you'll have the opportunity to push yourself and truly see your hard work pay off. We are still working out the software details, but in order to be included in the entire series results, the racer must complete the official racecourse located in Buda, TX. We will release a course map, GPS data, and if you contact us we might even be able to come run with you! You will then be able to submit your time along with your GPS data to get verified and included! Our virtual races aren't a substitution for a real race, because we certainly run better together.
Your race entry will include:
The Runfield T-shirt
Bib (along with chip timing)
We will have chip timing this year and post-race refreshments at each event. Each event will have a special vendor with a sweet treat to replenish your calories! We are a community event, so don't expect too much - we are trying to keep this super simple and just have fun. Any proceeds from the race will go directly towards supporting Outsiders Anonymous, but we certainly want to provide a fun, sober 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.
