HALLOWEEN EDITION

overview

We are excited to be bringing back Night Time Trail Race back to Jack Brooks Park. With its single track trails, winding trail and small venue it will be a great addition to the TROT pack. With this being a night race we will have glow in the dark medals, glow in the dark shirts and the NIGHT TIME PARTY you wont want to miss. Of course in TRUE TROT style expect some surprises on the trail and also at the aid stations. The capacity is set for 450 so dont miss out. 

COSTUME CONTEST

We will award the TOP 3 Costumes for the Night Moves Trail Run a 100% comped entry into any future solo race on the schedule. 

Spooky TRAIL PORTION

There will be a 2 tenths of a mile section after the first aid stations that will be your choice of going the normal route or daring to go into a Halloween themed section of the course. Both end up in the same place but the spooky section is optional.

VOLUNTEERING:

With any race comes a small army that works behind the scenes to make it all happen. We think volunteers are the MOST important part of any race and we do our best to provide them with the best as well. If you have never been on the other side of the table than give it a shot.

Organizing a group to staff an aid station can be a great fundraiser opportunity for your organization. Earn up to $250 for your cause or that money can be used towards travel expenses among the members of your group, use it however you see fit.  

Volunteer Shifts Range from 4-8 hours depending on event.

All of Our volunteers will receive:

Free park entry, an area to camp,  race merchandise, and a provided meal on race day.

In Addition to this:

*If you volunteer for (1) Shift at any race you will get 50% off registration for any of our event in the future.

** If you volunteer for (2) Shifts at one race you will receive A FREE 100% Comped Entry Into any one of races in the future.

*** We will also have some shifts for our 100k and 100 mile races that we will give 100% comped entries for as well.

If you would like to volunteer please emails us at volunteer@trailracingovertexas.com and we will send you a schedule of shifts that can be worked as well as description of the jobs and what they entail.
