Rocky Raccoon got so big a few years ago we ended up splitting the 50 mile and 50km distances onto the following weekend. We also have a half marathon now! So now Rocky 50 is a stand alone event. If you want to run your first ultra, or you want to run a really fast and scenic trail race, this is your course. Just enough change in elevation to be considered a real trail run, lots of exposed tree roots, beautiful pine trees with their needles nestled under your feet, cool bridges, a gorgeous east Texas lake, wildlife, and a wonderful set of aid stations and volunteers.
