Event details and schedule


1M @ 9:00 AM

Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races, that are technically sound (correctly-measured courses with minimum turns and visible distance – mile or Km – markers),  that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer****.

This will be the eighth presentation of Autumn “Trail” Mile or ATM, another race in beautiful River Legacy Parks, with distance markers every 1/4 mile. It appears to be the only surviving competitive Fall Mile in this neck of the woods! It should serve as a not-too-demanding return to road racing after the Thanksgiving feasts that follow the Turkey Trots. It also could be a warm-up for the Winter Run, a week later. Of course, the course will be measured correctly and the race will be timed conveniently and accurately. Of course, the age brackets will run the gamut from 6 & under to 85 & over. Of course, there will be intermediate mile markers so that you can track your progress, pun intended. Of course, the race will be fun & competitive. Of course, there will be a charity beneficiary (SafeHaven of Tarrant County).****

Net proceeds from the race will benefit SafeHaven of Tarrant County – “with a mission to end family violence through safety, support, prevention and social change”. ****
