Trail Running Course

Los Chupacabras de la Noche 10 km 2010 San Antonio Results

Last Friday, San Antonio took trail running to the dark-side for the Los Chupacabras de la Noche 10km evening trail fun run through McAllister Park. This adventure started at 9pm so a light source of some kind was required.

This event definitely seems like a confirmation on the growth of running as there was over a 100% increase in participants from last year. There were over 900 runners ready for a run in the woods and the party that followed.


The clockwise looped course is described at rocky, rooty, and heavily wooded…and watch out for low branches. The elevation profile highlights a variety of up/downs but nothing too crazy. Most climbs were in the 5-40 feet range.
