Dinosaur Valley State Park, Glen Rose, Texas

Dinosaur Valley State Park is by far one of the most family friendly venues in Texas.

Camping is extra and you can register for a site through our registration page. We have reserved a limited amount of campsites for Friday and Saturday night, with water/electric that are $25 per site, per night. These sites are first come/first serve as you arrive on the day of your reservation. Camping is non-refundable and always sells out.

Dinosaur Valley State Park is a public trail and will NOT be closed just for this event so please be courteous of your fellow outdoor enthusiasts.


Course

This is an off-road duathlon, which by nature, is an adventure. Be flexible on race day. The courses we choose are subject to change and depend on the water flow and rain in July.

NO AID STATIONS
Duathlons are self-sufficient. You must carry water bottles or a hydration pack at least for the bike portion. It is mid-summer and this is a fairly rocky course with plenty of climbing. You will need hydration!

5k Trail Run
The 5k loop runs from the amphitheater down to cross the river at a slippery, low water crossing (yes you will get your feet wet early on), then makes a rocky ascent to a scenic overlook before heading back down, then along the river to a 2nd river crossing where you will head back on a trail behind the campgrounds. Some years we cross the river by hopping from rock to rock at Dino Track #2. Any way you cut it, the climb to the scenic overlook and back down are steep and rocky. You will cross the river twice (once at the start and once at the end of the loop).

15k Bike
The 15k loop rides from the amphitheater down to cross the river at a slippery, low water crossing, then heads out on a rocky trail that will take you around much of Dinosaur Valley State Park’s outer loop trail. This is a challenging course but plenty of fun.

2k Trail Run
The final 2k run will an easier loop than the first. You’ve earned it by now!

REQUIRED GEAR
Mountain Bikes & Biking Helmets for each rider (CPSC Certified Bike Helmet), running shoes, sense of adventure, and method of carrying water on run or bike (water bottle or hydration pack).

NO LITTERING THE COURSE. KEEP THE PARK BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT.
