The final race of this years Rogue Trail Series took place within the 1300 acres of Reveille Peak Ranch located within Texas Hill Country, a short drive from Austin, Texas. The final 10 km and 30 km series adventure is called The Ranch and  included some rocky rugged terrain and Hill Country views.

As a first-time Rogue race at this location, there appeared to be a few issues with course markings so we will ignore any results in this summary and share the heart of the sport – our ability to enjoy the outdoors and run within nature along with a number of others that share our same interest.

Race Reports and pics

  • “The run itself went really well – no problems with 18 miles on the MT101s, ran the whole thing with Dave Silvestro, and we set a really good pace, taking turns leading on the trails.” by Jeff @ Green Ninja
  • “This was a tough, tough course. Most of the terrain was jagged rocky surfaces, and I was terrified I was going to twist an ankle. For a large portion of the race, I was alone. Every once in awhile someone would come up from behind, and I would hang with them for awhile. Or, I would catch people and enjoy the company before pulling ahead. But, the majority of the race it was just me and my thoughts.” by Erin @ Erin’s Adventures in Running

    Great writeup David! I hope they put on some ultras there, it’s a perfect place for it. Probably not even that far from D/FW for the NTTR runners!
