Rough Creek Trail Run
10K / Half Marathon / Marathon / 40 Miler
Saturday, September 21, 2019


The main loop will contain a large amount of non-technical, scenic trail that will allow you to look around and enjoy the beauty of Texas Hill Country. Expect significant exposure = minimal shade. It will be hot! (Glen Rose avg: high 89F, low 65F)

Approximately three miles of each main loop (13-ish miles) will treat runners to the Rusty Crown. It’s rugged. It’s steep. It’s technical. It’s no joke! Put your head down and just get it done!

The Bowl, is fast, non-technical running that provides some beautiful views of the area and a few fun hills to climb and descend. Don’t forget, the remainder of the Rusty Crown still awaits.

40 mile – three (3) x main loop

marathon – two (2) x main loop

half marathon – one (1) x main loop

10 km = one (1) x modified main loop

Course Markings

It is each participant's responsibility to watch carefully for course markings. We will be using a combination of

  • bright pink contractor tape flagging
  • bright pink stake flags
  • arrow signs (left, right, straight)

You may also see CAUTION tape quarantining off a place to NOT go.

Confidence flagging: For trail sections where there's no possible logical offshoot of a trail that you could take other than the one you are on, you may go as far as a half mile without flagging.

If you ever get to a spot where you are completely unsure of where you are, backtrack on the path you took until you get to course markers. If you become utterly and completely lost, never ever go off trail. Sit down where you are and wait until someone gets to you.
