About The Headwaters of the Frio Trail Marathon
The Headwaters of the Frio Trail Marathon in Leakey, Texas is a half marathon experience like no other. On April 1st, 2023, runners will traverse 13.1 miles through some of the most scenic and picturesque parts of Texas Hill Country. The race route follows a single-track trail along the Frio River and within Lost Maples State Natural Area.
The course is mostly flat with only minimal elevation changes throughout; however, it’s still challenging enough to keep experienced runners on their toes! It’s also perfect for newbies who are just getting into running longer distances as it provides an ideal introduction to trail running without being overly difficult or daunting. Alongside the river, participants will be treated to stunning views that include lush greenery and unique rock formations. During this time of year (April) temperatures average around 70 degrees Fahrenheit during the day with mild evenings in the upper 50’s making for comfortable racing conditions if you dress appropriately!
The crowds at this race are small but enthusiastic – friends and family members who have gathered to cheer everyone on while they make their way around the course! Local businesses often set up shop near popular points along the route so there is plenty of support available when needed too which adds another level of excitement to proceedings!
One particularly special feature about this event is that all finishers receive an engraved geode stone featuring art made by local artist Kristina Graves alongside medals commemorating their achievement – something truly unique that celebrates each individual’s success! This makes completing such a challenge even more rewarding than usual too which is always nice after pushing yourself physically over a long distance run like this one!. All in all, if you’re looking for an enjoyable and memorable half-marathon then look no further than Headwaters of The Frio Trail Marathon – it really does have something for everyone from seasoned veterans right through to first-time racers!
