Runners start the out-and-back course for the race at the Cedar Bayou Resort & Marina, which lies just a few miles west from the trailhead for the 14-mile-long Cross Timbers Trail at Juniper Point. There are wave starting times for each of the races, with the 50-milers starting first, followed in order by the full marathoners, the half-marathon runners and those running the 5-miler last. The cutoff time for the race (which usually affects only those running the 50-mile race) is 5:00 PM.
