Texas > Dare to Ascend Trail Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K
Georgetown, TX • Saturday, September 29, 2012 • Course Map
This year will mark the first year that the Dare to Ascend Trail Half Marathon will take place. The purpose of the marathon is to help raise money to support Ascend's mission of helping at-risk youth by facilitating outdoor adventure programs. It is expected that about 200 runners will take part in the race, so be sure to save your spot!
The marathon will take place in Russell Park and will take runners around Goodwater Loop, which is a highlight of the town. Within the loop runners are sure to encounter all sorts of scenic views such as vistas of Lake Georgetown and plenty of shrubbery. The trail is dotted with trees here and there, mostly oak and cedar trees, but most of the foliage consists of hardy shrubs. With flat land and eye-catching scenario, this marathon is bound to be great.
