Update on 2021 Frisco Trail Race. The event will be postponed to July 10th to give the trail a chance to dry so we do not cause damage. We’ve experienced another wet spring in the DFW area! If it feels like you’ve moved to the Pacific Northwest there is a reason… we’ve had 83 days of measurable precipitation this year (Jan – May) with an increasing amount of rainfall each month from January to May. May has had 18 days of rainfall and we are already over 6” (not including today's rain) while the historical average is around 3.74”. It is not the record-setting rainfall of 2015, but it has been a challenge for the trail community to manage and I know many of you are itching to get back in the saddle! We’ve already postponed the Frisco Trail Race once and unfortunately; we will need to postpone the race yet again.
Option 1 (default): You can attend – great! Your registration automatically rolls over to the new date - July 10th.
Option 2 (let us know): You can no longer attend, but you want to donate. You can leave your registration as a donation and feel good knowing you are supporting NTTR, DORBA, the Frisco Trail, and a cross country scholarship awarded through the Frisco Education Foundation.
Option 3 (let us know): You can no longer attend, and you’d like to keep your entry as a future race credit
Option 4 (let us know): You can no longer attend, and you want a refund. We can provide a refund less any incurred costs (shirts, awards, city services, etc).
The refund deadline will be Friday, June 25 at 11:59pm
Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
P.S. Some of the common soil types in Collin County are Vertisols. These types of soils have a high degree of clay in them and they are typically very hard and crack in the dry season but become very sticky during the wet season. This type of soil is the reason many trails – including The Frisco Trail – are closed to all traffic during and after periods of rain.
We at NTTR understand that 2020 and 2021 have been a challenging time for many; especially related to the direct and indirect impact of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Top of mind is the health and safety of our friends, family, and communities. We cancelled in-person social events during 2020 and races have required approved COVID safety measures (distancing, sanitation, masks). We have stayed informed on the latest information as many of you have been doing. Our hearts and prayers extend to all of our trail family and we encourage each individual and family to adopt a risk posture appropriate for their situation.

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.
