This race, our fourth 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. This year we will feature two and four person relays in addition to the traditional half marathon.
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.
Race Day is October 12, 2019, with the race starting on the trail just off of Highway 82 in DeKalb, Texas, at approximately the 900 block of Grizzly Drive across from the Maranatha Christian Center, and finishing at the Three Bostons' Museum located downtown New Boston, Texas, at #1 Trail Head Park Plaza. A post-race celebration will take place at the finish line. On the morning of the race, buses will be carrying participants from Trailhead Park in New Boston to the start line in DeKalb with the last bus leaving at 7:30 a.m.
Registration Packet pick up will be under the Trailhead Pavilion (just west of the Three Bostons' Museum) on October 11, 2019, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and again on the day of the race from 6:00 a.m. until 7:30 a.m.
