Cross Timbers Trail Run

Cross Timbers Trail Run logo

As the oldest trail run in Texas, Cross Timbers Trail Run 2019 will be the 38th annual running of this event! Enjoy the rugged trails on the shoreline of Lake Texoma on the Texas side with the comfortable temperatures that come with being in Texas in February. We have distances to create an enjoyable day or a hard-fought challenge for anyone!

Lake Texoma is situated right on the border of Texas and Oklahoma. This lake is very popular, attracting 6 million visitors a year. Over 400 runners and walkers gather together every February to run the Cross Timbers Trail out-and-back along the lake’s shore. It’s a challenging wooded course with lots of roots, rocks, and hills to keep you challenged and engaged!

5 Mile / Half Marathon / Marathon / 50 Mile Ultramarathon

This is the 3rd and final race in The Active Joe Trail Race Series. Run any timed distance at all 3 of our trail races and earn an extra medal.

Online Registration

Packet Pickup

Packet pickup is available at the pre-race dinner Friday night. Race morning packet pickup is from 6:00 am to 7:15 am. This ensures the volunteers, who are also running, can run to the bathroom and still make their race. Note again that packet pickup closes at 7:15 am EVEN IF YOUR RACE DOESN’T START UNTIL 7:30 or 7:45. No exceptions.

What am I picking up? The following things:

  • Your bib (write medical concerns we should know about on the back as well as emergency contact numbers)
  • Safety pins. Pin your bib wherever you want as long as it’s on the front of you AND my volunteers can clearly read it at each aid station.
  • Your entrant shirt (you can swap sizes after your race)

If you signed up in the couple weeks before the race, swag provided may be limited to whatever we had left.
