Big Bend National Park, incredible scenery, with well-trained good spirited volunteers, and camaraderie among runners. We ran the 10K last year and had SUCH A GREAT TIME!

To register for the 50K, 25K or 10K, do it online here. (And the race's facebook page is here.) Make your camping or hotel reservations separately, but do both soon! This is a benefit event for the Friends of Big Bend National Park and the proceeds go to support park efforts...so far, over their 15 year history, they've donated $1.2 million to the park! If you're not a runner, consider joining them as a member. The Friends facebook page is here!)
