About The Race

Due to the heavy rains and storms on April 20, the Coyote Trail Run has been rescheduled to June 8 and moved to the Six-O Ranch, this year only. More details will be shared in the coming weeks. If you were registered for the race, you should see an email with options if you cannot join us on the new date.

Held in Cleburne State Park, the trails will give you challenging terrain, some steep climbs and beautiful scenery. No matter what distance you tackle, this race will challenge you and give you plenty of reasons to celebrate at the finish line!

We are a cupless race. Learn more.

All races start and finish in the same location. Runners in the 50 Mile, 50K, 25K and 8 mile races will complete the same 8 mile loop (8.33 miles). Each 8 mile loop is between 800 to 1,000 feet of elevation gain.

  • 50 Mile: Six loops
  • 50K: Four loops
  • 25K: Two loops
  • 8 Mile: One loop
  • 4 Mile: One modified loop

Aid Stations

IMPORTANT: All runners in all distances must carry a hydration device (i.e. Water Bottle or Hydration Bladder) to participate in the race. 

This is a cupless race. We do not provide cups to participants. However, we sell a rubber reusable collapsable cup for $5 each that can be purchased when you pick up your race packet.

Aid stations will have volunteer support. In addition to Water and Gatorade, we will stock the aid station with bananas, oranges, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, potato chips, Oreos, fig cookies, soda, Salt Stick and much more.

Runners will hit a single aid station on the course for each loop. Runners completing multiple loops can also access the start/finish aid station.

Pacers

Pacers are only allowed for 50-mile runners in the last loop.

Lodging and Camping

Lodging

There are several hotels nearby in both Cleburne and Glen Rose.

Camping

Get your day pass ahead of time. The cost of park entry is $6 per person for anyone 13 or older. (Price is set by Texas Parks and Wildlife and subject to change.) This is a special event and therefore your Texas Park Pass cannot be used for entry into the park for the race.

If you are camping in the park, that will cover your park entry. More information to come on collecting park fees.

Registration and Refund Policy

We understand that things come up. If you can no longer run the race, if you cancel more than 30 days in advance, you will receive 100% race credit for another Blaze Trails Running event. If you cancel between 30 days and two weeks prior to race day, you will receive 50% race credit towards another Blaze Trails Running event. We will not allow any refunds or transfers less than two weeks before race day. No exceptions.

To cancel, log into Ultrasignup > Registration History and select “Edit” to cancel your race. Your credit needs to be used within one year. If you need an extended time to use your credit due to medical reasons (including pregnancy) or military deployments, please reach out ahead of time.

Bib transfers to another runner are allowed up until the two weeks prior to the race only if the race has not sold out and there is no waitlist. If you are interested in transferring your bib to a friend, please contact us immediately. It is very important for the safety of all runners that we have the correct contact and medical information. If the shirt order has already been placed, your friend agrees to accept the shirt size that you ordered. A $15 administration fee (plus transaction fee) will be charged to the person who is accepting the bib transfer. We require transfers to be completed no later than two weeks prior to the race. This allows us to keep our focus on producing the event and other important race details during the race week. If you contact us in the last two weeks to ask for a transfer, we will not reply and the transfer is not allowed. No exceptions.

When you register, you acknowledge that we do not provide a refund if we are forced to cancel the race due to unforeseen circumstances that risk the safety of our participants due to conditions that are out of the race director’s control. This may include, but is not limited to flooding, lightning or any other weather condition that makes the course unsafe for participants.
