runnerThe “Big Bend” region of Texas includes the huge natural areas of Big Bend National Park at 800,000 acres, and next door, Big Bend Ranch State Park at 310,000 acres. It also includes the towns of Marfa, Alpine, Lajitas, Terlingua, Presidio, and a lot of open space and beautiful mountain ranges.

The last handful of Big Bend 50 events have been held in the National Park, and now, for 2015, we are planning an ultra in Big Bend Ranch State Park.

The 2015 event is again managed by race director Carroll Voss of Overland Race Management, and a motley crew of dedicated volunteers you’ve met at the Big Bend 50 events for the last 10 years.
