More Information

The gates to Clark Gardens will open at 5:30 a.m.  Runners will be able to park in a parking lot that is close to the start/finish area and walk to the start/finish area.

The race committee and the race director take pride in being consistent with four traditional features of this race:

  1. To bring awareness of the sacrifice and service of the Vietnam Era US Troops.
  2. We start the race at a line drawn in the dirt.
  3. Every runner is recognized during the Awards Ceremony.
  4. This is the most scenic ultra-run race course in Texas and one of the most scenic in the US (if you like flowers).

The aid station will be fully stocked with water, sports drinks, soda and the usual array of chips, crackers, candy, fruit and sandwiches. You can bring your own cooler with ice and drinks to supplement the aid station if you wish. Runners can set up their own area along the course.
