Trailhead Running Presents
Women on the Trails Race Series

Remember having fun running through the woods, chasing frogs or butterflies, and coming home with dirty clothes and leaves in your hair? Welcome to the Women on the Trails Race Series!

Each race offers a fun and challenging event for women who are new to trail running or for experienced runners who are looking for a different type of race venue.  The race is capped at 200 participants to keep the event fun and personal, and spectators are welcome to volunteer and cheer!

Race Terrain

The course is a mix of dirt, rock, and mulch and features rolling terrain with the exception of what we are calling "Holy Hill" (as in holy cow that's a BIG hill)! Most of the race is on a disc golf course so bring your frisbee!
This is a very technical course.

We didn't call this race bruises and bandages for nothing! The first and last mile is on hilly, single track, technical terrain with a lot of skull rock. The rest of the route follows the shoreline of Lake Georgetown on a gently rolling wide jeep road - perfect for speed!
This is a very technical course.

Meadows and fields describe this course. Set just north of Buda, it follows Onion Creek (don't worry - no creek crossing) on a fairly flat course with a few rolling hills and many twists and turns on mostly double-track trail and jeep road.
This is a moderately technical course.
