Our second event is held at Muleshoe Bend LCRA Recreation Area. Approximately 40 miles northwest of Austin in picturesque Spicewood, TX. Muleshoe Bend is located on the scenic Lower Colorado River, Lake Travis region. This course is challenging, rocky, technical with 3094 feet of elevation gain. These trails are deceptively tough, with the heat and humidity making Muleshoe Bend a worthy adversary. This is primarily due to the thick foliage and heavy wood creating very little wind. Get ready to sweat.
“Very strong work. My first 30k (tbh, my first trail run period) and it was an amazing experience. Much of that was thanks to the outstanding organization of the event. I’m still not sure how something as chaotic as a night trail race in the middle of a wilderness park is better organized and supported than most road races I’ve attended, but clearly you know what you are doing. Hope to experience it again soon."
