Individually handmade Isle du Bois clay medals (created by our awesome friends Tyler and Stephanie Greenhaw) are ready to be placed around our local Nature Nate’s honey bears and handed to YOU as you cross the finish line!!
If interested in joining our end of year trail celebration with a 5M – 55k adventure, please check out the IDB page.
Registration will close down by next Monday!
P.S. – We are also moving up on 300 registrations which will put another 15 Blue Bear Beanies in the Giveaway drawing!
If you have any Isle du Bois questions, tonight I will have a live Twitter chat where I will answer your race or trail running Qs.
Hey IDB Tribe,
Not interested in camping but want to be within 10 minutes of the race site?
Check out the Lantana Resort (within Pilot Point).
You get free entry to the Isle du Bois state park during your stay. While runners already get free entry on race day, this could be nice for family and friends.
A mini-bonus, if 10 or more rooms are book under “IDB trail race”, you all will receive $5 off your room rate. That’s like one fancy coffee, 4 7-11 coffees, 4 gels, or 30-60+ miles of driving.

Hey EB Tribe,

If you are not racing and would like to be part of this special day, we would be honored with your support. Opportunities include packet pickup and aid stations.
Basic volunteer info and how to contact me about your interest: EBA Volunteer Page
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.
