Bigfoot Trail Race Presented by Bimbo

Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020 - Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020

Bigfoot is now a virtual event!

Originally supposed to take place at Spring Lake Preserve in San Marcos, TX, due to events beyond our control (looking at you COVID-19), we are forced to cancel the in-person event and move to a virtual space. Select from our three distance options: 5K, 10K, 30K and pick trails of your choice to run in support of the Back on My Feet mission.
 

A note to our runners:
2020 will be our final year hosting the Bigfoot Trail Race, as our Austin chapter will be shifting our focus to deepening the impact our program has on members through additional workshops and other resources we directly provide to our members.
This unique race has been a part of race calendars for many years and although we won't be organizing a formal race, we'll continue transforming lives one mile at a time at our weekly morning runs. 
We hope you'll join us!
