The Start and Finish for all distances will be near the NW Community Trailhead.
Saturday, February 9, 2019
The trails will be marked with ground markings and color coordinated directional signage for each race distance. The first 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 or purchase a HydraPak SPEEDCUP™ onsite for $5 and we will refill them at the aid stations.
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!
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!
There are opportunities to staff aid stations, provide assistance with course navigation, packet pickup/registration and help at the start/finish line. All volunteers will receive a Frisco Trail Race shirt.
