Rough Creek

ROUGH CREEK – Saturday September 19 2015 – Glen Rose, Texas

Rough Creek Trail Run occurs on the ruggedly beautiful grounds and private property of Rough Creek Lodge & Resort just outside the town of Glen Rose, Texas.

This course provides a unique mix of terrain, from well groomed, toenail safe trails on varied terrain, to the steep, rugged, and technical miles along a featured section of the course we call the Rusty Crown.

A memory making adventure with a community of great people.

Lace them up and get ready for a day of awesomeness!

It could be hot (avg 89F high / 65F low). There is not a lot of shade. Be prepared! Check out the Course Info and Maps page for hot weather running insight and tips.

*Rough Creek is also part of the EBA High-5 Challenge Series and Texas Trail Running Championship Series!


What the Tribe is Saying about Rough Creek…

You and yours do an awesome job, and I truly hope the adventures will keep growing! You put your heart and soul in it, and it shows. Thanks for the memories!

Rough Creek 

A hearty "thank you" for another thrilling EBA adventure! Rough Creek was by far the most challenging trail event I've ever done. On each climb I embraced the challenge (as you often say), and kept stating to myself, "finish what you start". I also said, "Gosh, Dave had to mark this whole course himself?!!!?" We can tell you love what you do. Thank you! I appreciate the time and effort you put into providing so many of us a rockin' good time, and the opportunity to challenge ourselves beyond what we already know.

Rough Creek 

Today was my second trail run at Rough Creek! My first go was Cedar Ridge! Thanks to the crazy Rusty crown, I don't think I could climb into my own car after that! Thank you for having the shorter distances for us newbies so that we could be a part of an awesome community!!! Volunteers were AWESOME!!!!
