  2. We got new merch comin!! We have some new bottles coming in including soft flasks and foldable cups in about 3 weeks. We’ve had new shirts come out, along with some new hats. We also have new lights coming in about 3 weeks including a chest light, and an all in one lantern with a phone charger and flashlight to have in your camping area.

  3. We are always recruiting for volunteers for all of our races including those with a medical background that want to assist with our medical team. Just send us an email:

  4. Lonestar 100/Franklins 200 Update - 2020 will be the last year for this races. The work that goes into it and manpower that is required is extreme. At the end of the day it puts a lot of strain on resources and our volunteers. We will replace it with an event that is more manageable and just as fun and possibly longer!! Can you say 350 miles???!!!


*It’s time to get the fall season started this weekend at Habanero Hundred!!

Just when we thought we couldn’t get any bigger than 2018, this year’s race is breaking registration records this year! We got ya covered with 10,000 lbs of ice ready to rock n roll!!  Huge thanks to our ice guy, RK Ice!!Of course this race does not happen on its own. Many thanks to all of our incredible volunteers and medical crew led by Jaime Aparicio!  Thanks from all of us for helping and coming out to see our runners succeed. It’s gonna be a luau party with a hula theme so come dressed to celebrate. Our 1st place M/F runners will receive tiki torch awards. We are super excited to also have our new sponsors joining us for Habanero. We got Isopure for post race recovery, CrazyWater (they are bringing 500 gallons of water for you guys), Bobs Red Mill, and Crunchmaster Crackers. All of their products will be at aid stations.

Alamo City Ultra - Alamo City is on fire with an average of 20 registrations per day! Do not wait to get in. It sold out last year and it is projected to sell out, especially on Saturday as those spots are quickly going. Sunday we have plenty of spots. It’s gonna be a crazy fiesta party in San Antonio! Thanks to Manny with Cow Tippin BBQ for being our food truck for the race.

Colorado Crossing - There is water in the river and we are riding the rafts! Only some distances cross river, so be mindful of that when you register. Great shirt and medal to be released soon! Volunteers who sign up for two shifts will receive a free pair of Goodrs!!

This will be the last year for this race. It will be replaced by a race in Paris, TX. It will be a Saturday and Sunday race, red felt cowboy hats for two day racers. Look for some super fun stuff at this race including Paris belt buckles, and macaroons at aid stations. It’ll be something for the whole family to enjoy!!
