Of course, some things we cannot do without, and these are what we need help with. Medical, course markers, checkers to make certain every station always has water and ice, and also to cross check names, bibs, and times at every aid station, chip pullers, & someone to hand out medals & awards. And there is always some grunt work, but really not all that much. So if you want to help and can… please contact us and note the day(s), time(s) and means to contact you (name, phone, email, when to call). Volunteers should sign up in the volunteer section on our website. We plan on being out at the park the week prior to the event:
Setup and Tear-Down requires a lot of work. Would love some help. We start a rolling tear-down following the last runner. This includes course markings, trash, & aid stations.
Capt’n Karl’s Trail Series begins on the hilly, steep and rocky trails of Pedernales Falls State Park along the Pedernales River. Located 9 miles east of the consequential Johnson City and only 43 miles northwest of beautiful Austin, Texas. Runners will be traversing Wolf and Tobacco Mountains while winding along the small canyons created by Mescal and Tobacco creeks. Jones Springs is a wonderful oasis that runners will hear in the distance as they cruise through the single track section of our loop course. Before runners finish our course, they will maneuver down to the Pedernales River and navigate along the rocky shores of Twin Falls while heading back to the Equestrian Center.

Our second event is held at Muleshoe Bend LCRA Recreation Park. Approximately 40 miles northwest of Austin in picturesque Spicewood, TX. Muleshoe Bend is located on the scenic Lower Colorado River, Lake Travis region. This course is challenging, rocky, technical and 95% single track with 3094 feet of elevation gain. These trails are deceptively tough, with the heat and humidity making Muleshoe Bend a worthy advisory. This is primarily due to the thick foliage and heavy wood creating very little wind. Get ready to sweat.

Join us for the third installment of the epic Capt’n Karl’s Trail Series as we run the rugged and demanding trails of Colorado Bend State Park. This locale is more reminiscent of the western United States than central Texas. Boosting cliffs and canyon lands, limestone caves, numerous natural springs, amazing waterfalls and precious solitude. This park truly has it all and has quickly become a favorite of our runners and families. Prepare yourselves for a wonderful treat!

Our night time trail series concludes most appropriately at one of the best privately owned adventure parks in all of Texas, the amazing Reveille Peak Ranch! This park is located 55 miles northwest of Austin in the historic town of Burnet. The amenities at RPR are first class and we will be taking advantage of this by providing our runners, spectators and volunteers with a series finale party. But first, runners will be treated to unique and spectacular geological formations. Navigating over large rock domes with amazing views, while tackling the most elevation gain/loss of our four venues (2861 ft). This course really has it all….single track, exposure, wood, service roads, hills and technicality. All to challenge even the most seasoned trail runner.
