The Race

The Course

This Independence Day celebration will run the beautiful and expansive Trinity Trails System in Fort Worth. The flat and fast course traverses bridges overlooking the river, parks with groves of oak trees, and double track trail on non-technical terrain consisting of both pavement and dirt for you both to enjoy. No need to leave Fido home on this morning's run; bring him along as your running companion.

Afterwards, mingle with your mongrels, listen to music, and drink beer served ice cold, all while hanging out with friends on an outdoor patio located directly on the trail at Mutt's Cantina.

If you are looking for the perfect occasion to spend our nation's birthday on the trails then this is one you don't want to miss.
