Our fourth EBA adventure of the year is quickly coming up with the 3rd annual Rough Creek on Saturday September 20th, in Glen Rose, Texas! We will have four race distances: 10k, half marathon, marathon, and 40M.
More race info: http://endurancebuzzadventures.com/events/rough-creek/
We are looking for some amazing people to help support our community during this unique trail running adventure.
Here are the main opportunities on how you can be involved and definitely make a difference (all opportunities occur on race day):
1. Packet Pickup (The smiles that set the vibe for the day)
2. Aid Station (Support our runners to the finish. We will have 3 aid stations.)
3. Sweeper (follow the last runner to close off the event, 13 mile loop)
As you likely know, as one of the ways we share our gratitude for your involvement, is transferable discounts to future EBA adventures (details: http://endurancebuzzadventures.com/volunteer/). Something we love to do!
Depending on your availability, a few of the aid station team may also be involved with packet pick-up.
If you have interest and availability to be involved with our Rough Creek All-Star Volunteer tribe, simple respond through our contact page with your time window of availability and we will work on putting our teams together and let everyone know in the coming weeks.
Thanks again and all the best!
The Shirt Reaper is in sight.

For those playing in the fun Texas Trail Championship series, the Ultra and Trail (sub ultra) series standings have been updated with Cedar Ridge results! Anything can happen yet with 12 races to go before the end of the year.
Your top 7 point scores within a series (Ultra and/or Trail) will be used to calculate your final standings. (You need at least four finishes to be counted in the final standings within the Trail (sub-ultra) series.)
Both of our final EBA races of the year, Rough Creek (our next race) and Isle du Bois, are included in the series.
Check out the current standings and details on how to be a part of it (USATF membership) for the remainder of the year if interested.
As the temps continued to rise at Cedar Ridge on Saturday, the spirit and inspiring energy of the tribe could not be tempered on this sultry summer day in north Texas!
Arriving back home late Saturday after the race with a full 14 foot uhaul truck waiting to be unpacked, I continued to sit in the cab by myself and reflect on the day while listening to some melodic classical music on the radio. And then I began to see the race as the music. The compassionate and high-energy volunteers, the amazing and courageous runners, our amazing and long-time partners, all delivering beautiful notes, rhythms, and a few cymbal crashes, that when combined created this beautiful and completely unique song, OUR song. A song of possibilities. A song of courage. A song of community. A reminder of how we all bring our own individual sound, but when brought together with a common purpose, we create art without any bounds or limitations.
Thank you all for being a part of OUR song at Cedar Ridge. We hope you took home a few memories as you spent the morning with the tribe at this special north Texas trail.

Register for this memory making north Texas adventure.
What a weekend of pine scented singletrack greatness at Whispering Pines!
A group of all-star volunteers that over-delivered from before sunrise till we brought our final runner home. These wonderful people turn “stuff” into a trail running experience.
An amazing group of runners laced them up! Some first-time trail runners, some experienced veterans, and an awesome group of youth. Ages 10 to 72 came together to play, help one another, and enjoy some Fuzzies Tacos post-race. Let’s not forget our 1/2 mile kids fun run that had ages between 2 and 12! This is a community experience. This is a bit of the nectar of life.
A big thanks to our passion filled partners from the team at Tyler State Park, Fuzzies Tacos in Tyler, Hammer Nutrition, Movin’ Pictures, Nature Nate’s, Cowbells.com, Webscorer, and Road ID.
