camping:

We reserve several camping spots closest to the start/finish area. Each spot can fit several tents, so you can pick your space on a first-come-first-serve basis. To reserve a spot, just go to our "Purchases" page and pay the $25. That covers you for both Friday and Saturday. You provide the tent! There is a single shower head at the main park entrance where you can go rinse off, or there is always the option to bathe in Lake Travis post-race! Bring a bathing suit and towel.

When the weather is nice, we will host an outdoor movie the Friday and Saturday night before each race. It typically starts around 8/8:30 pm and runs about one hour. It's typically a collection of short adventure films and kid friendly. Cornucopia generously provides a couple tins of various flavors of the best popcorn you've ever had! Plenty for everyone. Bring a chair or blanket!

Closest hotels are about 15-20 minutes away in Bee Cave.

RULES TO Race BY:

 

  1. We love dogs, cats, parakeets, and your pet goldfish just as much as you, but they won't be allowed to race with you. Muleshoe Bend is an LCRA property and they DO allow dogs, but you must keep them on a leash and have a person with them at all times while you race.

  2. Pacers are only allowed on the second half of our ultra distances. A pacer is only there for motivational support and safety, and thus cannot be used as a mule to carry any of your food/water/gear. 

  3. You get a finishers medal only for finishing. We have some amazing hand-made, recycled wood medals that we will be thrilled to throw around your neck...but only after you cross that finish line. And earn it!

  4. We can't give refunds or transfers. Once you purchase your race entry, we pay the land owners for your park pass, buy your t-shirt or hat, pay the insurance company,  pay the timing company and photographer,  and on. That said, we're still very reasonable people and want to help you out. If you write a compelling request, we'll give you a discount to a future race.

  5. No cutting the course (ie CHEATING). Some days just aren't your day to race well. Realizing and respecting that bad race day by dropping out is WAY cooler than getting caught cheating. Oh, and if (when) we catch you, you will be asked to not race with us again. Ever.

  6. We prefer you race without them, but if you're going to wear headphones, use only one earbud or turn it way down. You have to hear people trying to communicate with you. We have had a runner take off in the complete wrong direction just because she couldn't hear us screaming at her to stop. Her loss.

  7. Most of the trails are single track or very narrow, so get used to saying "ON YOUR LEFT" when you pass. It also never hurts to tell that person something encouraging like, "NICE JOB". And while you're on a kind streak, a big "THANK YOU" to the volunteers is golden and earns you an extra beer.

  8. If we have to postpone the race due to weather, we will push the race back to that afternoon or into the next day. We aren't afraid of a downpour, but we don't mess with lightning or hurricanes...or Sharknato.
