The 2019 Frisco Trail Race Finale was the final race on the original trail as we lost nearly half the trail to the PGA of America development which began on July 1, 2019. There were some tremendous volunteers who relocated the trail equipment and reconnected the remaining trail system. The new trailhead is now located off of Teel Pkwy on the east side across from Stafford Middle School.
