Trail Running Course

Piney Woods Trail Run 2010 Results

A little over a week ago, the Piney Woods Trail Run took place at the Lake Houston Wilderness park, located 30 minutes north of downtown Houston, Texas. The trail event had both a 10 mile and 5 km race that took runners along a fairly flat single-track trail. Recent rainfall meant it was going to be a run filled with water and mud for the 200+ runners. Time to get dirty!
