Texas summers cause all of us to suffer, why not suffer together while having some fun on a Blazin’ summer night?!
Join us for the first annual Blazin’ Summer Sufferfest, held at Cedar Hill State Park. The night race will be held on the 12 mile DORBA trail system in the southern part of Cedar Hill State Park. Winding through over 1000 acres of forest and grasslands along the edge of Joe Pool lake, the terrain is moderate to challenging.
This is a Night Trail Race that starts at 7:00PM with a 12 hour time limit.
IMPORTANT: All runners must carry a hydration device (i.e. Water Bottle or Hydration Bladder) to participate in the race. This is a summer race in Texas and it will still be Blazin’ Hot after 7:00PM in August. Yes, even the ≈5K and ≈10K races. There are NO aid stations for the 5K race, and only one aid station in the 10K race. You need to make sure you can carry enough water to run the 3-4.5 miles between aid stations in the heat.
All races start after 7:00PM. Sunset will be around 8:20PM.
- Runners in the 5K/10K will have about 60 minutes of full sunlight.
- Runners in the 18K/36K/54K will have about 90 minutes of full sunlight.
If you cannot complete a full loop of your race before sundown, you will need to carry a headlamp or flashlight. We strongly encourage ALL runners to carry an illumination device during their race. Runners in the ≈18K/≈36K/≈54K are encouraged to bring extra batteries and/or a backup illumination device while on the trail. There is no lighting on the trail!
