Come join us for the inaugural running of the Six-O Trail run. This race is brought to you by Blaze Trails Running, the producer of the Grasslands Trail Run and the Rockledge Rumble. 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 2800 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.
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
--Finisher's medal for each distance
--Well-stocked aid stations
Same-day registration is available but registering early helps us plan better. We will do our best to forecast the shirts, medals and post-race meals we need for all of our runners.

Planning Your Race
Local time: 4:03 PM
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.
