Two Premier Trail Races in the Pineywoods of Texas.
Hog’s Hunt and Rocky Raccoon 25/50K trail races have become Texas classics. The two races represent a combined history of 47 years. An enjoyable course in the tall pine trees winds its way around Lake Raven. Well stocked aid stations and friendly volunteers add to the fun. And yes, we’ve heard the rumors, but its simply not true about Chaco Canyon National Historic Park, a race there was not cancelled due to nearby fracking. It seems there was simply never a race schedule for the Anasazi stronghold of Chaco Canyon (Northwest New Mexico). Back to reality…..

The 50K starts at 6 a.m., with the 25K and 5-mile events starting at 7 a.m.
