Trail Racing Over Texas Cup Standings

Trail Racing Over Texas Cup Standings 

The Brazos Bend 50 was a great test of endurance for all of the runners on April 25th 2015. The runners had to deal with rain, hail, mud and then the sun at the end of the day. Once the rain stopped the runners started to come in with some really impressive times. 

There was a few shake ups in the top men's and women's field for the Trot Cup as well. Team TROT runner Tracie Akerhielm won the 50k overall and cemented herself in the #1 spot for the overall standings. Team TROT runner Melinda Coen had a great 4th place finish in the 50 miler and put herself in 3rd place in the overall female standings. 

Team TROT runner Jeff Ball trailed Team TROT runner Cal Neff from the San Felipe Shootout and entered into the 50k. Jeff finished 2nd overall and took over the points lead for the TROT Cup. Cal Neff who was in Turkey running with Red Bull slid to 2nd place. Daniel Bucci who race strong at San Felipe Shootout was the 4th male in the 50k and is your 3rd male in the TROT Cup Standings. 

The Team Cup Standings will be available after the Horseshoe Trail Run and will start updating after each race there after.

Fresh off of the San Felipe Shootout we have updated and calculated all the points for the TROT CUP. Each point counts for every race as there is more than $3500 in Cash and more up for grabs for individuals and age group winners.  Per the rules of the Cup all runners are included in the individual and age group winnings. You do not have to have a minimum about of races to qualify and the relays will accumulate points as well for the individual runners. 

We are allowing Teams to submit members that may have run but forgot to declare a team until after the Horseshoe Trail Run on May 16th. After that date your points will start for your team once you declare your team even if you forget until later in the year.  We want to make sure that is it fair for the 2nd half of the year and teams don't pick up runners who happen to be collecting more points.
