Due to limited parking at Government Canyon, runners will park at Folks Middle School. The school is located at 9855 Swayback Ranch Road approximately 1 mile from the Natural Area entrance (map). Runners should plan to arrive at least an hour before the race start to allow time for shuttle transport and the 1/4 mile walk to the start line.
Buses will shuttle runners to and from Government Canyon between 6:15am and 11:30am. Runners will be dropped off at the picnic pavilion near the Visitor’s Center where timing chips and race day packet pickup/registration is located. ONLY registered runners are able to ride the buses.
Family and friends of the runners may park at the Natural Area, but must either pay the $6 entry fee or use their Texas State Park Pass. Parking is very limited at the Natural Area. Plan ahead as there may be extended wait time at the Fee Booth. We apologize for any inconvenience.
