Frisco Education Foundation NTTR Scholarship

Hello Trail Running Friends!

Big congratulations to the first North Texas Trail Runners scholarship recipient - Mackenzie Payne! Mackenzie is a Frisco cross country runner and will be soon heading off to her first year of college where she will also be running! A part of the proceeds for the Frisco Trail Race were used to establish a scholarship that will be awarded to a Frisco Education Foundation applicant involved in cross country and we will continue to award the North Texas Trail Runner's scholarship as long as we are able to do so. By the way, Mackenzie ran the Frisco Trail Race Finale 15K!

This was the final race on the original trail system 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 helped tame the jungle and repair the trail after the historic rain leading up to the race.
