Western States Qualifier
The Brazos Bend 100 miler event is the first Western States Endurance Run qualifying race on the calendar for the next year's lottery! All 100-mile finishers that meet the WSER qualifying time requirement will earn a ticket for next year's WSER lotto to be drawn into the following year's race.
Brazos Bend 100
100 Miler / 50 Miler / 26.2 Marathon / 13.1 Half Marathon
The Brazos Bend 100 Miler is the FASTEST trail in the nation with its mostly flat course and easy aid stations. It's the perfect place to set some personal records, and there are 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.
