Running Wild

CEDAR HILL, TX—Hundreds of visitors from all over Texas and surrounding states crowded the Dallas Off-Road Biking Association trailhead inside Cedar Hill State Park for the Eco Lone Star Adventure Race series sport and extreme outdoor triathlon early Saturday morning.

Teams and individuals participated in running and mountain biking courses mapped throughout the extensive trails of the large park, located in the southern DFW Metroplex, as well as paddling events along a charted shoreline course of Joe Pool reservoir. Collectively, participants competed for time and points in the USARA-sanctioned event.

Weather permitting, tomorrow is scheduled to feature a 5k and 15k run inside the park, as part of XTERRA Trail Run and Pure Austin Trail Running series.

Pictured here are Greg Rankin and his son, Nathan Rankin (age 14), of Parker, TX, shown hustling their inflatable kayak to the water’s edge to launch for the sprint paddling event.
