Big Cedar Endurance Run

at Dinosaur Valley State Park

Half Marathon / 50K / 50 Mile / 100 Mile

November 4-5, 2016 (100 Miler starts Nov. 4, 50 Mile / 50K / Half starts Nov. 5)

Big Cedar Endurance Run was the first 100 mile trailrunning event in North Texas! Now join us for our third year!

This year, due to land ownership issues with our usual venue, the race will be held at the beautiful Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas. This course has rolling and sustained ascents and descents, although none are terribly steep. The loops take you through varied terrain, from double track trails in fields to single track in wooded areas. There is a mix of packed dirt, smaller rocks, larger rocks, slick rock, and some roots. There are also two river crossings per race loop. This course really has a little of everything, which includes its views. There are amazing overlooks on this course where you can see for miles.

(Details on how the venue change came about are here... The last two years the race took place at the highest point in the city of Dallas, Prayer Mountain, which is home to the Mountain Creek Church. The church owns the Big Cedar Wilderness Trail, which is maintained by the Dallas Off-Road Bike Association.)

This race has had a really unlucky streak the last two years with unusual weather. Read on about why this is the 100 miler with the lowest finish rate in Texas (until we get a good weather year!) and our new plans to prevent having to cancel in the future due to significant rain or storms.
