Brazos Bend 100
100 Miler / 50 Miler / 100 Mile Relay (6 Person) / 26.2 Marathon / 13.1 Half Marathon

The Brazos Bend 100 Miler aims to be the fastest race in Texas and the nation with its mostly flat course and easy aid stations. Its the perfect place to set some personal records. And there's alligators! The wildlife is abundant in Brazos Bend State Park, but it's overshadowed in general interest by the American alligator. 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.
