Cancelled Event


2024 Event Canceled

Due to the uncertainty of our permit being approved in time because of USFS rules and regulations in addition to the lack of alternative long trail systems in the area, we made the decision to officially cancel this year’s 2024 Sabine Trail Runs. All participants who are signed up will be refunded. Refunds can take up to two weeks to process.

We may try to get Sabine Trail Runs permitted by January 2025.

If you’re looking to do a trail race that weekend (January 20th, 2024), we are heading near San Antonio to put on the Frio Trail Runs, A 10K, 13M, 30K, 26M, and 50K trail race located in the scenic Texas Hill Country of Leakey TX.

We received tremendous support from the City of Hemphill City Manager. In addition to that, we thank the Sabine community for your support and interest. We hope to see the Sabine Trail Runs come to life in the near future.
