CEDAR RIDGE TRAIL RUN – Saturday July 26, 2014 – Dallas, Texas
Cedar Ridge Trail Run occurs on a surprisingly challenging and scenic trail system at Cedar Ridge Preserve located on the southwestern edge of the city of Dallas.
This scamper will challenge any local runner with its steep and sometimes technically challenging climbs and descents. There are a variety of man-made steps throughout the course that will turn it into as much adventure as trail run.
The moderately short loop format will be part of what I call Formula 1 trail racing where the action will be fast, fun, furious, and a little delirious.
It will be hot! Be prepared! (Avg: high 95F, low 76F) Check out the Course Info and Maps page for hot weather running insight and tips.
New for 2014!
- We will have a 9 km scamper!
