2021 Race Information
We are tentatively planning on opening registration on 5/1/2021.
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 wide availability of vaccines for COVID-19 will not be available until spring at the earliest, we are still planning the race to comply with current guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Race Day Information
When entering Rockledge Park, park staff will collect $4 for each vehicle. There will be two lines for cash and credit card. We highly recommend having $4 in exact change to expedite this more quickly.

Time Cut Off
All 50K/30K participants must be past the Murrell Park aid station no later than 2:30 p.m. This will be the third time that the 50K runners pass this aid station and the second time for the 30K runners. This cut off will be strictly enforced out of respect for all volunteers and the timing company.
All participants will receive a bib, race shirt, and post-race meal with their entry. All finishers will earn a finisher’s medal. Top Male and Female finishers in all three distances, as well as top Master’s finisher (40+), will earn prizes.
Aid Stations and Drop bags
This is a cup-less race. Please bring your own hydration device to carry and consume fluids on the course. Water and Tailwind will be available at all aid stations along with bananas, oranges, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, soda, Oreo cookies, potato chips, and a whole lot more. We like to have fun at the aid stations and mix it up just a little each year while keeping people’s favorites.
Supplies for 50K participants can be left in a drop bag at the aid station near the start/finish. Remember to pick up your drop bag after the race.
Directions to Race
I-635 West from Dallas and Highway 121 North from Ft. Worth or DFW Airport
Exit Bass Pro road from 635 or 121. Proceed to Bass Pro/Bethel Rd., turn left, and follow Bass Pro Rd over 121 and past Bass Pro Shops for 1/3 mile. Turn left onto Hwy 26, and immediately get into the right hand lane. After ~1/2 mile turn right on Fairway Drive and proceed over the dam. When you come up out of the sluiceway you will see Griff’s Hamburgers on your right and the entrance to Rockledge Park on your left. Turn left into the park, and for Jackson Pavilion/Rockledge Rumble, follow your friendly volunteer showing you the way.
Highway 121 South from Lewisville
Exit Grapevine Mills Blvd., stay straight to get onto 26W. Go through the light at Bass Pro, then proceed to Fairway Drive. Follow the directions above to get to Rockledge Park and Jackson Pavilion.
2499/International Parkway South from Flower Mound
If you are coming from the North on 2499 or as it is now called, International Parkway, you can turn right on a new street called Silveron Blvd. Follow it for about half a mile and then turn left around the circle onto Lakeside Pkwy. Look for the entrance to Rockledge Park on your right and follow directions above to Jackson Pavilion. (Silveron is about 2 miles south of FM 3040.)
Registration and Refund Policy
We understand that things come up. If you can no longer run the race, if you let us know more than one month in advance, you will receive 100% race credit for another Blaze Trails Running event. If you let us know between one month and two weeks prior to race day, you will receive 50% race credit towards another Blaze Trails Running event. We will not allow any refunds or transfers less than two weeks before race day. No exceptions.
Local time: 9:00 PM
Bib transfers to another runner are allowed up until the two weeks prior to the race only if the race has not sold out. If you are interested in transferring your bib to a friend, please contact us immediately. It is very important for the safety of all runners that we have the correct contact and medical information. If the shirt order has already been placed, your friend agrees to accept the shirt size that you ordered. A $15 administration fee (plus transaction fee) will be charged to the person who is accepting the bib transfer. We do not allow transfers if the event has sold out and have a waitlist. In that case, we will follow the posted refund policy and allow the next person on the wait list to register. We require transfers to be completed no later than two weeks prior to the race. This allows us to keep our focus on producing the event and other important race details during the race week. If you contact us in the last two weeks to ask for a transfer, we will not reply and the transfer is not allowed. No exceptions.
Refund and/or transfer requests must be made in writing by sending an email to email@example.com. Refunds are only processed as a credit to a future event.
I further understand that I am not entitled to a refund if the race director and/or race officials are forced to cancel the race due to any participant safety issue on the course that is out of the race organizer’s control. This may include, but is not limited to flooding, lightning or any other weather condition that makes the course unsafe for participants.
