Toughest Little Trail in Texas

Cross Timbers Trail Race

Important Race Update:

We will hold the 35th anniversary of Cross Timbers Trail Runs on Saturday, February 13, 2016! Many trail modifications will be in place for all distances (50 mile, marathon, 1/2 marathon and 5 mile) due to flooding in the area, but we are sure you’ll enjoy it.

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help complete the new trails prior to race day.

Thank you and Happy Trails!
