Eco Lonestar Trail Run – 2011 Results

Last weekend, the first Annual Eco Lonestar Trail Run took place at Reveille Peak Ranch located in the Hill Country town of Burnet, a short drive northwest of Austin, Texas.

The 5 km and 15 km adventure is also part of the 2011 Trail Runner Trophy Series.

Over 50 trail runners participated in one of the two distances.

Course

The trail is described to include gorgeous granite rock outcroppings, challenging hilly terrain, and beautiful views.

The pics from the ranches website can give a bit of an idea of the type of terrain.

Also here is a short video from a section of the trail. (This may or may not be part of the race but I thought it was kind of cool.)
