COVID-19 Announcement: Gator Bait Adventure Race and Trail Run – 3/17/2020

Hello Terra Firma Racing community.

We were just notified that all group events at Huntsville State Park between today and April 30th are being canceled. This means that the Gator Bait Adventure Race and Trail Run events on April 25 and 26 will be canceled and rescheduled. We are working with Huntsville State Park to solidify an alternate weekend as soon as their operations resume to normal. We will keep everyone updated as this progress. As stated in an earlier message, all existing registrations will migrate, in whole, to the new date. If for any reason you will not be able to attend the new date, a voucher will be issued for you to participate in any other Terra Firma Racing event that you would like. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to follow the advice and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) websites.

Take care and be safe!

April 26, 2020

Huntsville State Park, Huntsville, Texas
Race Start: 9:00 a.m.

Choose from a 5k, 15k or 13.1 mile trail run. Lose yourself among the majestic trees and natural beauty of the East Texas Pineywoods. The heavily-wooded park adjoins the Sam Houston National Forest and encloses the 210-acre Lake Raven. Expect the trails to be mostly flowy single-track with sandy bits, roots, beautiful bridge crossings, and hopefully gator sightings!
