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 17, 2019.  The race is being put on by the Georgetown Running Club (GRC).

 

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 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 2019 because the trail is not wide enough in spots or suitable for them.  Running strollers are allowed but not recommended on the 5k Course 2019.  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.

 

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

The 10K will start at 8:30am followed by the 5K at 8:45am.  Bibs should be worn on the FRONT.  Both races are chip timed events.  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 back here.
