Buena Suerte 50 Mile Ultra Run
Quick Silver 30K Ultra Run
Big Bend Ranch State Park, next to Big Bend National Park
The “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.

This is mile 30 for the 50M. Hot food, coffee, water, privy, radios. The next leg is steep downhill. Rocky and beautiful. This is the highest point in the race.
