Mostly narrow, hilly trail with some rocky and hazardous areas. Some call Cross Timbers the
"toughest little trail in Texas".

Out and Back along scenic Lake Texoma shores. The start and finish is at Cedar Bayou Resort located 0.8 miles west of Hwy 377 on the Texas side of Lake Texoma. This is 13 miles north or Whitesboro and 2 miles south of Lake Texoma, approximately 90 miles north of Dallas.

50-Mile at 6:30am, Marathon and Half-Marathon at 7:00am, 5-Mile at 8:30am.

The 50-Mile cut-off at Cedar Bayou Marina (mile 45) is at 5:00pm. Runners will be stopped for their own safety. If a runner feels that they can continue, they MUST carry a flashlight and have a pacer.

Shirts to all. Awards to top male and female in each race. Awards to all 50 mile finishers. 50 milers can enter the “Jay Norman 50 Mile Relay ”. Each team must have at least THREE members and all members each run 50 miles. The winning team is the total of the three best 50 mile times and they receive a team award. GREAT EVENT!
