THE SOUTHWEST'S ULTIMATE TRAIL RUN
On October 19, 2024 the Palo Duro Trail Run will celebrate it's 39th edition. The race was started by Red Spicer as a road race and has morphed into a beautiful trail run, with distances of 25K, 50K, and 50 Miles. The race takes place in mid- October when temperatures can vary from freezing at the start to over 100 degrees during the afternoon. You will run a variety of trails from rolling singletrack to sand and rock. There are short but steep and technical ascents and descents.. The course is a looped course, so you will see people most of the day and return to the start/finish in order to meet your crew.
The aid stations offer a variety of salty and sweet snacks, and our famous "Date Nut Bars"! We also offer Water, Sodas and Electrolyte drinks. Awards are given to the top three overall and masters in each race. Participants are welcome to beef or vegetarian burgers with all the fixings. Also please be respectful, No Dogs allowed in the finish line area or on the trail.
Transfers available until 10/13/2024
There will be no Refunds or Rollovers.
