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. ***

You’ve done the 5K (3.107 mls.); maybe the 10K (6.214 mls.)  also; perhaps, even the 15K (9.321 mls.) …but the full Marathon may be an impossible dream away…The 20K (12.428 mls.) or the Half (13.109 mls.) may be a bit too far also...Plus, you’ve yearned to do a double-digit mile race.  So you’re saying this ain’t ever gonna happen. Well, my friend, become a believer. Have faith! We’ll help you make all this happen. You can start a trend  -- be a trailblazer…You can finally step into the two-digit mile zone in an official  race – barely, but who’s counting?  After all, 10 is as much a two-digit number  as is 13 or 26 or 99! And we’ll tie it all into the Marathon family. This race provides a chance to finally step into the two-digit mile zone (10.486 mils) in an official  race and you can also associate it with the Marathon mania (2/5 of a marathon) – all in one race.

If you’re already into double-digit mile races, this could be a good training long run on the way to local or nearby area longer distance races in late September to December. Those include the Clark Gardens Half, Lost Dog  20K, the Tyler Rose Marathon/Half, Honored Hero 20M/Half, Waterworks 25K, Boo Run Half, Stephenville Half  -- all in October; DRC Half, Fort Worth Marathon,/20M/Half, Rockledge Rumble 50K/30K, Big D 30K, San Antonio Marathon/Half, FWRC Mote in Motion Half – in November; White Rock Marathon/Half – in December; etc..
