2021 Race Information
We are opening registration on 4/1/2021.
Please note that much of the race content below and on our website was created prior to the spread of COVID-19. Since it is anticipated that vaccines for COVID-19 will be widely available by mid-summer of 2021, we do not expect to need to implement COVID protocols for this race. However, we will still comply with any state/local gudielines that are in efffect at the time of the race.
Come join us for the second running of the Six-O Trail run. The Six-O Trail Run will be held at it’s namesake the Six-O Ranch in Cleburne, Texas. The Six-O Ranch is a 1600-acre working cattle ranch located on the edge of the Texas Hill Country that features over 20 miles of trail. The course will consist of a combination of single track, dirt ranch roads, and a few crossings over wide-open fields. We’ll even throw in a couple of water crossings along the way as long as mother nature cooperates.
Distances include a 50K, Marathon, Half-Marathon and 6 mile.
All runners will get:
--A beautiful and fun day on the trails
--Tri-blend, soft race shirt that our runners love

Planning Your Race
This is a cupless race. Aid stations will provide water, Tailwind and more (see below) but you must carry a hydration system to carry water on the course. That could include handheld water bottles, running vest or other choices. If you're unsure, visit REI or your local running store.
In addition to water and Tailwind, aid stations will have soda. If you plan to drink soda, you will need a collapsible, reusable cup. We will sell them before the race for $3 each. These silicone cups are completely collapsible and reusable. We recommend using these at our races and other races to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used.
In addition to water, Tailwind, and soda, we will have SaltStick (electrolytes) and many of your favorite aid station foods including bananas and other fruit, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, potato chips, Oreos, fig cookies, pickles, salted potatoes and more.
Aid Station Locations
50K runners--will run the main course two times. (This is the same loop as the marathon race but will have some sections added to gain the additional mileage.) Runners will hit aid stations three times on each loop, plus the start/finish. That gives 50K runners access to aid stations 7 times throughout the race. The longest distance between aid stations is approximately 5 miles. That is from the start/finish to the first aid station.
Marathon and Half Marathon runners--They run the main loop (marathon--2x; half marathon-1x) and will hit three aid stations for each loop. The longest distance between aid stations is just over 4 miles from the start/finish to the first aid station.
6-mile runners: Will run a different loop and will hit one main aid station and one aid station with water only.
50K and Marathon runners may leave a Drop Bag at the Start/Finish aid station. Remember to pick up your drop bag at the end of the race.
The Six-O Trail Run is held on the Six-O Ranch, 11404 FM 200, Cleburne, TX 76033.
We are all guests of the ranch and we ask everyone to treat the property with respect. Because this is a working ranch, dogs are not allowed.
Tent/RV camping will be available Friday Night only for $10 per site. Please note this is primitive camping (i.e. no electric, water or sewer) so plan accordingly. Portable toilets for the race will be delivered on Friday and will be available for campers to use. Camping fees will be collected by Blaze Trails on behalf of the ranch owners. All proceeds from camping/parking go directly to the owners of the ranch.
Parking on race day will be $5, collected by Blaze Trails on behalf of the ranch owners. We encourage car pooling.
Runners can get full race credit one month prior to the event. They can earn 50% race credit between one month and two weeks prior. In the final two weeks, there are no refunds/race credit/ or transfers allowed. No exceptions.
