Miss races? Us too!

Join us for a true minimalist half-marathon. We are providing a flat, loop course at beautiful Lake Tyler. This race is limited to 100 people and will have COVID precautions, including temp check for runners and volunteers, staggered start, and bottled water only. 

All volunteers will wear masks and we encourage runners to wear masks when not racing (before and after).

Each runner receives a: custom medal, chip-timed race on a measured course, finisher tshirt and donation to local charity. 

The top 3 overall male/female runners will win a pair of Hoka One One running shoes.

Let's get back to what running is all about - a truly minimalist racing experience. 

"Of all the virtues we can learn, no trait is more useful, more essential for survival, and more likely to improve the quality of life than the ability to transform adversity into an enjoyable challenge." – Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
