10th Annual Purgatory Trail Run
Saturday, January 08, 2022Time: 8:00 am CDT
Wonder World Dr and Hunter Road
San Marcos, Texas 78666

We will see you at the Purgatory Trail this morning! 


The 10 mile course leads runners through a rather porous section of the Edwards Aquifer. Juniper groves, meadows, ephemeral wetlands, and oak mottes co-exist in Purgatory Creek Greenspace.  More experienced trail runners will enjoy some difficult technical sections of trail during the race while still runnable.

We strive to be a "sustainable" race operation, this means we are a cupless race.  We have water a water stop on the 10 mi at the turnaround but each runner will need to carry a bottle on the course with them.  This is not new for us, lets all up our game and keep trash out of our landfills.

The 5K course is a rigorous course with a medium technical rating and is the perfect introduction into trail running. You must bring your own water & water bottle to run with.

Walkers and hikers are encouraged and welcome to participate in the 5K and the 10 mile race.

Runners and walkers will receive a t-shirt.  Be advised, the tshirts are unisex sizing.

Shirts will be first come(registered), first serve.

No dogs allowed.   No refunds.
