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!

The Penultimate Event In The Capt'n Karl's Trail Series
"Those who don’t take a chance, won’t get a chance."
Capt'n Karl (Brad & Nyla Quinn's late father-in-law/father who this series is named)
“Y’all! These are SO much fun in some of the most beautiful places in Texas. Nyla & Brad take care of their entrants and treat them like family.” Laura Euckert
"I'm so looking forward to the series - these are hands down my favorite races of the year."
Celena Dopart, TX Trail Running Champion
"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!"
Julie Koepke, TX Trail Running Champion
"Hi Brad, I wanted to thank you for such an amazing race and express my sincere gratitude for how well organized everything was. The aid stations were life saving and so well stocked, not sure I could have finished the 30k without all the ice/water/snacks and positive energy coming from all the volunteers. It was physically grueling and mentally challenging but I’d do it again next week knowing how well run it is."
