Race Instructions for Race to Build 5k & 10k Trail Race

HABITAT_RUN_20189ai

Welcome Race Participants,

 

Thank you for supporting Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County and Williamson County Parks & Recreation by participating in the Race to Build 10k or 5k Trail Race on Sunday, March 4, 2018.  10K starts at 8:30am and 5K at 8:45am. The race is being put on by the Georgetown Running Club (GRC).

Volunteers still needed.  Click link to sign-up.  Some jobs allow you to still run.

Before getting into the details of the race, it is important that you understand that this is a trail race on rugged, natural trails.  These are not cinder trails that are in other areas of this park.  You will definitely encounter loose rocks, permanent rocks, dirt, leaves, sticks, tree branches, cactus as well as other natural obstacles and possibly wildlife.  The GRC and park have done our best to remove the high grass, but don’t let this fool you into thinking the trail is a well maintained, groomed trail.  Running strollers will not be allowed on the 10k Course because the trail is not wide enough in spots or suitable for them.  Running strollers are allowed but not recommended on the 5k Course.  This is for the safety of not only the person in the stroller but those on the course.  Dogs are also not allowed during the race.  Course maps available online at www.NoExcusesRunning.com.

 

Start Times, Bibs, & Chip Timing – 10k (8:30am) & 5k (8:45am)

The 10K will start at 8:30am followed by the 5K at 8:45amEspecially 10k racers, please don’t arrive late to the starting line because we cannot allow to start late because we have to close off the 10k turn before the 5k runners get there. Bibs should be worn on the FRONT.  This will be a chip timed event this year.  There will be on-site results as well as live results on-line provided by Event Data Solutions.

 

Weather Conditions – Rain or Shine

The race will happen rain or shine.  It is a trail race, so the more mud, the better.  Only lightning will postpone or cause cancellation of the event.  If you want to stay up to date on announcements, then join the Race to Build 5K & 10K Trail Race Facebook event or check the No Excuses Running website at www.NoExcusesRunning.com

 

Parking – 3005 County Road 175, Leander, TX

Restrooms

There will be portable toilets located in the disc golf parking lot within 100m from the start/finish line.  If you prefer indoor toilets, they are located at the stadium (400m from the start/finish line), tennis courts (700m away), and softball fields (800m away).  Plan accordingly.
