A message from the race director...
My goal in putting on this race was to try and bring people that live around Houston and surrounding cities to the great park of Brazos Bend. The park has many great things to offer us as runners and as people. Beautiful parks, wildlife and trails are just a few. So with putting on this race I wanted to create the fastest course I could around with multiple ways to get the best results. The aid stations are central located so that they can be hit 2x by the runners and that you are never too far away from one.
But thank you for registering for the 1st annual Brazos Bend 50 Miler. The Houston Area Trail Runners will be in charge of maning the aid stations, racing and also providing the southern Hospitality that you all expect.
Our website over at http://www.brazosbendtrailraces.com has all the information in this race documents as well.
The Brazos Bend State Park is excited to have us at the park and will be on the trails throughout the event and at the aid stations as well.
We will be donating a portion of the proceeds of the race to TEAM RWB and also The Brazos Bend State Park Volunteer organization (BBSPVO) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The mission of the BBSPVO is the assist with the care and conservation of the park and to education the visitors to Brazos Bend State Park through educational and interpretive programming. All donations are 100% tax deductible and will be used to maintain and improve Brazos Bend State Park. All donations that are made in association with organized trail races or runs will go into a dedicated fund for the maintenance and improvement of trails at Brazos Bend.
Thank you again
