Description

This race, our third annual, is being run from DeKalb, Texas, to New Boston, Texas, on the northeast terminus of the longest (130 miles) hike/bike trail in Texas. The Northeast Texas trail runs from Trailhead Pavilion in New Boston, Texas, to Farmersville, Texas. In the late 1990's, two railroads, the Union Pacific and the Chaparral, decided to cease active service and "rail banked" this stretch of rail bed making it available for non motorized activities.

A post-race celebration will take place at the finish line at the Trailhead Pavilion in New Boston.
