EVENT STARTS JULY 16, 2016
Event: XTERRA Jurassic Trail Run
Come run where the Dinosaurs roamed! Come explore their tracks at night, but don't let them catch you. Choose from a 5k or 15k trail run and bring a headlamp or flashlight, because you will be running after sunset following a course of reflective ribbon and glow necklaces to help find your way! Pictures below is the start of the run, crossing the river, just after sunset.
The 5k will follow a trail near the river, while the 15k will explore the single track trails throughout the state park and along the river. The trails can be rocky and technical in spots, so bring your sense of adventure.
For those of you that don't know XTERRA ~ these are the most recognizable, enjoyable, rock jumping, tree ducking, creek crossing, hill climbing, dirt on your shirt, sweat in you eye trail runs on the planet.
Stay for our annual party and cookout and swim in the Blue Hole afterwards. Family friendly.
Dinosaur Valley State Park - Long ago, dinosaurs left footprints in the mud at the edge of an ancient ocean.This long trip to the past is just a short drive from Fort Worth in Glen Rose. Come out and find dinosaur tracks, camp, picnic, hike, mountain bike, swim and fish in the river, watch for wildlife, look for a geocache, ride your horse, or visit the interpretive center.
