The Frisco Trail Race, originally scheduled for June 13th, 2020, has been re-scheduled for Saturday October 31st, 2020. We hope that you are as excited as we are, for this new Fall 2020 race date!
We at NTTR understand that 2020 has been a challenging time for many; especially related to the direct and indirect impact of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. First and foremost, on our minds is the health and safety of our friends, family, and communities. We cancelled or postponed all in-person events (group runs, races, etc.) at the beginning of the outbreak and have continued to follow the latest information as many of you have been doing. Our hearts and prayers extend to all our trail family and we encourage each individual and family to adopt a risk posture appropriate for their situation.
We also understand that exercising, good sleep, healthy eating, and reducing stress are the most important elements to being healthy and maintaining a healthy immune system and we are blessed enough to be passionate about a sport that largely takes place in outdoor, open spaces. As of Oct 1st, we will start to offer select events again for those who want the opportunity to participate in our trail community but we will have in place minimum guidelines as provided by national, state, and local authorities to help prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
These guidelines will be enforced at our events and you may personally exercise additional measures that you feel are necessary. We will not tolerate disparaging remarks towards anyone at our events for practicing measures they feel are important to their health. Guidelines subject to change based on current situation and ongoing updates from authorities.
Be sure to wear your Halloween costume during the race for a chance to win a Free NTTR Race Entry!
The trails will be marked with ground markings and color coordinated directional signage for each race distance. The trail race in Frisco will be run on fast, single-track dirt trails.
A cup-less race means that there will be no paper water cups between the start and the finish line like you’d typically see at road races.
Please bring a bottle/bladder!
The Frisco Trail Race will again benefit the Dallas Off Road Bike Association (DORBA) and the Frisco ISD Education Foundation. DORBA has put thousands of hours into building/maintaining the NWCP trail and FISD has been a great partner to work with in helping to make this event a reality!
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.
