Terra Firma Racing is the premiere off-road racing company in the Southwest Region of the United States. We put on adventure races, mountain bike races, and XTERRA Trail Runs. We are Texas' Original Adventure Race company founded in 1998. Feel free to check out all of our upcoming races on our website.
This is an off-road triathlon and includes an 800 meter swim, a 13.3 mile mountain bike and a 3.5 mile trail run. The race will take place on the most popular trail in the DFW Metroplex, Northshore trail on Lake Grapevine. The start will take place at Murrell Park (about midway on the one-way looped course). The swim will be in a cove near an out of service boat ramp, depending on water levels in May. The mountain bikers will enter the course and travel in a counter clockwise direction, heading west to the far end of the course and back on a sometimes fast, sometimes technical (including "rock gardens"), challenging single track loop. The runners will head east on a counter clockwise loop of flowy single track.
*This is a night run that begins at 8pm. You must bring a headlamp or flashlight. The course is marked with reflective arrows that will light up when your light shines on them.
DESCRIPTION: This is an XTERRA trail run "at night" along the beautiful Northshore Trail of Lake Grapevine. Distances: (5k,15K or 13.1m half marathon)
You will need a headlamp and we recommend a backup source of lighting as well in case your primary burns out.
Northshore is one of the most popular hiking and biking trails in North Texas & offers up moderately difficult terrain. There is a slower, "technical" west end of the trail, and faster, flatter east end of the trail. It is a great mix of all types of trail running.
This is an adventure race and includes approximately 3 miles of trail running, 7 miles of mountain bike, 20-30 minute paddle in inflatable kayaks that we provide & a mystery event or two. Lose yourself among the majestic trees and natural beauty of the East Texas Pineywoods. The heavily-wooded park adjoins the Sam Houston National Forest and encloses the 210-acre Lake Raven. The race is designed to take 1.5 - 2.5 hours on average. This is a 2-person team race (not a relay) where both racers must stay together the entire time. You may also do this race solo.
