Please note, this park will require all spectators to pay a small fee to enter the park. We take the $10 for the park upon your online registration for all racers. But all non-racers will need to pay at the gate. That fee will be good for the entire weekend. Even though it's a requirement, please consider it a cool way to support an amazing piece of Texas history, and the park's staff to maintain a very special set of trails!

"I Can't Put My Finger On What It Is Exactly, But Capt'n Karl's Trail Series Are My Favorite Races In The World. I Always Look Forward To Summer Because Of Them. Thank You A Million For Doing Them!"

Join us for the third installment of the epic Capt’n Karl’s Trail Series, as we run the rugged & demanding trails of Colorado Bend State Park. This locale is more reminiscent of the western United States than central Texas. Boasting cliffs & canyon lands, limestone caves, numerous natural springs, amazing waterfalls & precious solitude, this park truly has it all & has quickly become a favorite among our runners & families. Prepare yourselves for a wonderful treat!
