Spectrum trail Racing has built a team

of fast, creative, hard-working athletes

to serve as ambassadors to our races

and the sport of trail racing


you'll frequently see them building trails,

on the podium, or supporting fellow trail runners


Jason, Mallory, and Paxton Brooks

founders, race directors

We started Spectrum in 2014 with the goal of bringing a different style of racing to Texas: one that not only focused on providing a great race but also giving you a full blown finish line party with plenty of local flare.

We race, ourselves, so we know the importance of fine tuning each detail.

We've convinced Kate to leave the track to come get dirty with us on the trails. She's killin' it out there...and she's just getting started.

If we were a betting team, we would put money that Kate could run RiverPlace faster than any other speed demon lady out there. You want to go head to head? We would pay to see it.

Before JJ was ever a runner and living in Oaxaca, Mexico as a missionary, he signed up for a local race up and down a mountain, running through corn fields, backyards, over fences, past cattle, and a little bit of rock climbing...and survived! Thus began his new found love of running rugged!
