Cupless Race

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 or purchase a HydraPak SPEEDCUP™ onsite for $5 and we will refill them at the aid stations.

Aid Stations

  • Water, electrolyte drink, nutrition, and encouragement
  • Aid Stations located every 2-4 miles along the course

Additional Details

This year's 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! 


  • Main Parking at Sue Wilson Middle School and Billy Gene Elementary 
  • Overflow Parking @ Lone Star High School
  • Race briefings begin approximately 10 minutes prior to race start time, at the start line
  • Chip-timed race & Results posted to Ultrasignup
  • The last day to complete Bib Transfers and Distances changes within Ultrasignup is January 15th
  • Registration may be cancelled for a refund up to 30 full days prior to the race
  • As is standard for trail races, the distance designation is merely an approximation. It's about the experience!
  • Any runner caught littering is subject to immediate disqualification.  Please carry any litter to the next Aid Station where garbage bags are provided. 


Please remember that 2018 was the 2nd wettest year in recorded history (since 1898) and the wettest fall on record in DFW. Almost every trail event in the local area since last fall has had to postpone, move location, or cancel altogether and we know the race directors and participants want nothing more than to get back on the dirt and enjoy DFW trails again.


We are also keeping a close eye on The Frisco Trail condition and the weather and will let everyone know if we have to postpone the race. We are proceeding as if the race will happen on Feb 9th but if we are forced to postpone, we will either transfer entries, provide a refund, or accept the registration as a donation to the Frisco Education Fund.


Since this will be the last year of the Frisco Trail Race at this location due to Omni Stillwater Woods development, we are very passionate about holding a great finale race. We will work closely with DORBA and Frisco and keep everyone posted on any updates. FYI we have 2x backup dates planned: one in March and one in April.


Please be patient and respect our local trails while they are closed and hope to see you on the trails soon!
