The Brazos Bend 50 Miler aims to be the fastest race in Texas. With its mostly flat course, easy aid stations, and wildlife to watch, its the perfect place to set some PRs. The park’s wildlife is diverse and abundant. The white-­tailed deer is the largest of more than 25 … MORE

    Running at Brazos Bend is always exactly what you expect…insanely easy course but really, really pretty when you’re running through the swamp. Plenty of alligators to see and more than a couple of snakes to avoid. A lot of the course ends up being jeep roads through the park which are straight and soul-suckingly boring.

    As always, the best thing about a TROT race is the people. The volunteers were just as helpful, friendly, and encouraging as every TROT race I’ve done. The race director, Rob, and his crew deserve a huge shout-out for pulling the race off despite a road collapse in the park that totally changed their plans. The easy thing to do would’ve been to just call the whole thing off, but they showed amazing flexibility in getting solutions to the problems.

    Overall, I’ll keep doing races at Brazos and I’ll absolutely keep doing TROT races.

    Running in Texas you never know what you’re going to get. This year it was raining and cold in April! The trails were muddy and slick but it’s always a great time running at Brazos Bend. Be prepare for anything when you race in Texas.
