Why cupless? Tejas Trails is committed to reducing our environmental foot print & events like ours can use tens of thousands of cups annually. If you are unable to bring your own container, don't let it discourage you from running! We will have disposable water bottles you can take with you, in case you forget yours. Suggestions include hand held water bottles, hydration packs & collapsible cups.
10k = 10k // 13.1 = Thirteener // 26.2 = Marathon // 50k = Ultra
(well, technically an Ultra is anything beyond 26.2 miles but 50k is the Hill Country Trivium Ultra)

Right of Way
Of course! We encourage runners, walkers & joggers of all speeds to join us! The same cut off time of 9 hours will apply whether you sprint, walk, run or two step your way along the course.
Absolutely. We commend parents who are eager to make fitness a family affair!
There will be a few different options for the Hill Country Trivium packet pick up. Please Visit our Race Info Page for Full Itinerary
There will be 6 Aid Stations along the course of the Ultra, 4 aid stations for the Marathon, 2 aid stations on the Thirteener course & 1 hydration station on the 10k course. Because this is an out & back course, several of these aid stations will be hit twice.
Total aid stations for each distance (including finish line):
The Ultra: 14
The Marathon: 12
The Thirteener: 4
The 10k: 2
Aid Stations will have water, Tailwind, sodas, fruit, & an assortment of quick-to-grab foods such as chips, nuts & pretzels. Hydration Stations will have water, salts & packaged snacks only. Pie is at the Finish!
The course will be open for 9 hours & will close down at 4pm. Races will start at 7:00am (Ultra/Marathon), 7:30 (Thirteener), 8:00 (10k), so it is recommended that runners arrive by 6:15am at the latest.
NO SPECTATORS are allowed on course, per the City of Marble Falls and Marble Falls PD. These are old, narrow country roads with NO parking. Spectators on the course are a SAFETY HAZARD and could have life threatening consequences. Tejas Trails embraces the solitude & autonomy of running as well as the camaraderie of fellow runners on the same course. The Trivium course is also especially prized for its focus on nature & the quiet beauty of the Texas Hill Country. Only pacers who are also runners registered for the race are allowed on course. Spectators are welcomed & encouraged at Mustang Stadium. If family or friends feel a NEED to be out on the course supporting their runner(s), please contact the RD for volunteer opportunities.
All participant will receive a chip attached to an ankle strap. Your chips & ankle straps will be dispersed at PPU & collected upon your finish.
All distances 1st-3rd Male/Female overall (39 & younger). All Distances: 1st Male/Female Masters (40+ is masters)
The Hill Country Trivium continues to be a USATF sanctioned event, however we are NO longer a Boston Qualifier. If you're attempting to PR you may consider a different event, as this course is quite hilly & logistically challenging. Our roots are in ultra trail running & HCT follows in those footsteps. Just the way a Tejas Trails event is meant to be!
Of course, no problem! Participants, family & friends are allowed to pickup runner packets for others. Runners should email RD (Brad@TejasTrails.com) prior to PPU with details. Please remember to bring your bib on race day!
