This Weekend – Bar-H Boondoggle Six Hour Timed Trail Run

If you would like to get in some night trail running experience this weekend in north Texas, you may want to check out the charity driven, Bar-H Boondoggle Six Hour timed trail run.

The story behind this low-key event put on by Antje Spethmann

IN 2005 I discovered a Charity called Captain Hope’s Kids, which tends to the needs of homeless children. They were seeing an increase in homelessness among the families of service men and women who were deployed overseas.

We created the Boondoggle to gather diapers and supplies for the kiddos and were hugely successful. Over the years, CHK has asked me to donate cash, as they can buy more per dollar at the wholesale level, so the donation of $10 for this run goes directly to CHK.

Event Details (Evening Trail Run)

When: 5:00 p.m. Saturday, May 1st (Please be there early so we can start on time.)

Where: The Breaks at Bar-H, located on the outskirts of St. Jo, Texas. Directions (80-ish miles north of Dallas / Fort Worth)

Format/Course: “Get some HILL WORK in.” 6 Hour timed trail run. The course will be marked in flour. The course varies from year to year depending on trail conditions. It is planned to be approximately six miles per loop. We start at 5:00 p.m. and the person who finishes the most laps that were started before 10:59 p.m. is the winner.

General description of the trails

Trail Map with descriptive details for each trail section.

After runners finish, we grill and sit by the campfire to wait for the winner. Bring whatever you want to throw on the grill and a frosty cold beverage or two and join us for an hour or all night.

Course Support: Water, Gatorade, and basic snacks provided at start/finish area. This is a trail six miles, so it probably would be wise to bring your preferred hydration carrier.

Cost: $16 ($10 goes directly to the charity and $6 for the land access.) An additional $5 fee if you desire to camp overnight.

Register: Simply email Antje at rockgirl(AT) , then bring some cash and be ready to have some fun on the trails. Exact change would likely be greatly appreciated.

Be active – Feel the buzz!
