Bandera Trail Runs

In breve

Distanza Ultramaratona - 100km

Informazioni Bandera Trail Runs

Tucked away in the rugged terrain southwest of Bandera is Hill Country State Natural Area, an undeveloped and secluded retreat. Approximately 40 miles of multi-use trails wind up grassy valleys, cross spring-fed streams, and climb steep limestone hills. Hill Country State Natural Area is located in Bandera and Medina Counties, 45 miles northwest of San Antonio. The 5369.8-acre site was acquired by gift and purchase in 1976 and was opened to the public in 1984. The bulk of the site was a donation from the Merrick Bar-O-Ranch with the stipulation that it "be kept far removed and untouched by modern civilization, where everything is preserved intact, yet put to a useful purpose. "The Hill Country State Natural Area is a scenic mosaic of rocky hills, flowing springs, oak groves, grasslands, and canyons. The terrain ranges from flat, broad creek bottoms to steep, rocky canyons up to 2000 feet in elevation and is home to the annual Bandera 100km race. 

The Bandera 100km race is an out and back race which begins and ends at the Lodge at the Hill Country State Natural Area. It is described as a trail of rugged and brutal beauty where everything cuts, stings or bites.

Panoramica

 A 50km loop, repeated twice. Starts & finishes at the Lodge. First 5 miles are pretty rugged on into Nachos, including Big Nasty, Sky Island, and Ice Cream Hill. From Nachos through Chapas on to Cross Roads is all pretty tame. From Cross Roads back to Cross Roads again sports only the Sisters and they are not all that bad. The next section is relatively easy, until Lucky Peak, just before Last Chance. And the last 5mi to the Lodge include two more excellent climbs: Cairns Climb and Boyles Bump.
