FRISCO TRAIL RACE RETURNS October 31, 2020 (Rescheduled date) 5K | 10K


Race Update


As we are all experiencing in our personal and professional lives, the impact of this long-term COVID 19 closure continues to stall and postpone all Texas community events. The Frisco Trail Race has not been excluded from this widespread impact. With the help and support of our City of Frisco partners, the current June 13th, 2020 race date has been adjusted. 

The Frisco Trail Race, originally scheduled for June 13th, 2020, has been re-scheduled for Saturday October 31st, 2020. This date was selected with community, city, and runner feedback, along with consideration of other regional trail races. 

We hope that you are as excited as we are, for this new Fall 2020 race date! However, with the many conflicting obligations we all manage, we understand that some registrants may not be able to accommodate this new race day. If this is the case, please email a refund request to NTTR, and the registration amount will be refunded, less UltraSignup service fees. 

Unless otherwise requested, all other participants will automatically be re-registered for the new October 31st, 2020 date – no action is needed on your part! 

We appreciate your support of the North Texas Trail Runners organization, this Frisco Trail Race, and we look forward to seeing you on the trails.


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.
