THE TEXAS TRAIL RUNNING FESTIVAL
TRIFECTA TRAIL CHALLENGE

2017 Trifecta Results

This challenge was designed for Several reasons:

  • to test all aspects of a good trail runner (endurance, pacing, speed, active recovery, nutrition, hydration, race strategizing, patience, grit, the list goes on...).

  • to give runners a great training day in preparation for their upcoming summer ultra (ie Capt'n Karl's Trail Series).

  • to help new ultra runners have a great test (lots of miles, but broken up & in a really fun atmosphere).

  • to give runners a chance to practice night trail running before the Capt'n Karl's Night Trail Series.
