The Brazos Bend 100 Miler will aim to be the fastest race in Texas and the NATION with its mostly flat course, easy aid stations and wildlife to watch its the perfect set up for some PRs and some records to be set.
This race will also BE INCLUDED in the 2014 Texas Trail Running Championship http://www.texastrailchampionship.com/ for more information.
Wildlife is diverse and abundant. The white-tailed deer is the largest of more than 25 different species of mammals present, which also include bobcats, coyotes, raccoons, gray and red foxes, river otters, feral hogs and several species of rodents. Approximately 21 species of reptiles and amphibians have been recorded, and the smaller turtles, lizards, snakes and frogs are overshadowed in general interest by the American alligator, which is present mainly in the wetland areas of Elm, 40-Acre and Pilant lakes. (Feeding/harassment of wildlife is prohibited.) Birds of 290 species have been sighted in and around the park. The diverse habitat is a haven for migratory waterfowl, a variety of shorebirds, wading birds, songbirds and raptors.
