What You Get With Your Registration Fees

  • Early Registrants receive a really nice garment with the Event Logo & Tejas Trails logo on it.

    • In order to offer you a better price, for a few special events, like Mosaic Trail Run, the registration does not come with a shirt or hat, but you can pay a little more to receive one. This is shown on the reg screen for these events.

    • Otherwise, each event is different, but will have one of the following choices:

      • tank top, sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve, lightweight hoodie, heavyweight hoodie, jacket, microfleece, fleece, tech workout, soft tri-blend, or bamboo garment.

  • Late Registrants receive a non-size specific item of equal (or close to the same) value as the early reg item (13.1m - 100m distances only).

    • This could be a really nice hat, visor, beanie, water bottle, bag, towel, multi-functional headwear, etc.

  • Since the fees for the Shorter Distances (e.g. 5k, 8m, 10km, etc.) are substantially lower than the longer distance fees, runners who register AFTER the shirt cutoff date (i.e. Late Registrants) MIGHT receive a piece of really cool multi-functional head wear, instead of the other items listed above.

    • If you're unsure what the we're talking about, they are really useful & cool-looking stretchy garments that can be used for a million different things & are useful in cold/hot weather. You will love' em & can't have enough of them!

  • Any registrant is allowed to swap for the other item if there are any left over after about 11:00am (for morning start times) & 10:00pm (for evening start times) on Race Day (this does not include Late Reg Short Distance).

  • Every runner is allowed to take as much as they want from the Aid Stations.

  • Racing Bib & Timing Chip (used for realtime results).

  • Every finisher gets a really amazing medal for distances less than 100km. Every finisher of a 100km or 100 miler receives an incredibly cool belt buckle.

  • Overall Awards for Tejas Trails races are really special.

    • They are all unique.

    • Oftentimes handmade with a cool story.
