Join us for the inaugural Dana Peak Trail Run. During the inaugural event the longest distance will be a 50K run. In 2022 we are adding a 100K event that will feature approximately 6700 ft of climb.
The race is held at Dana Peak Park, located on the north shore of Stillhouse Hollow lake in Harker Heights Texas, approximately one hour from both Waco and Austin, Texas.
The trails ascend and descend the rocky terrain that hugs Stillhouse Hollow lake. While most of the trail system is in the trees there are some areas that are exposed. Throughout the race runners will climb several of the peaks along the shore catching incredible views of the lake during their journey along the course.
Each distance follows a single loop with limited repeat trails throughout your race! Elevation gain for the 50K is 3,354.
IMPORTANT: All runners must cary a hydration device (i.e. Water Bottle or Hydration Bladder) to participate in the race. 50K runners need to make sure they can carry enough water to last on the longest segment between aid stations (7 miles).
The information on the registration page only provides a basic overview of the event. Please check our website at: http://blazetrails.com/dana-peak for the latest information.

The 50K course will have six aid stations stops along the course. Most are between 3-5 miles apart. However, there is one segment that is 7 miles between aid stations. Please plan accordingly. We will post the distances between aid stations once we publish the course map.
The Lost-n-Found aid station is remote and not accessible by car or truck. This aid station will have less supplies but will include water, Tailwind, SaltStick and first aid supplies, at a minimum. The rest of the aid stations will include water, Tailwind, SaltStick, bananas, oranges, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, potato chips, Oreos, fig cookies, soda, pickles, pickle juice and first aid.
Because this course is a single 50K loop loop we are planning on having one drop bag location for 50K runners only.
