COVID-19 Announcement: Gator Bait Adventure Race and Trail Run – 4/20/2020

Hello Terra Firma Racing community!

On March 17 we informed everyone that we would issue vouchers to all registrants when the Gator Bait events where rescheduled. Due to how everything has been evolving the past month with COVID-19, and the economic impact that it is having in our communities, we have decided to refund all registration fees (minus the small PayPal processing fee). We know that right now money may be tight for everyone, so it only makes sense to put it back into the best place it can be right now: your hands. We will be processing the refunds this week and should be done by Friday. We are confident that when things return to normalcy we will all see each other again at the starting line of your favorite Terra Firma Racing event! In the meantime be safe and continue training 😊!

As before, 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!

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!
