Just adjacent to the longest undeveloped barrier island in the world, Mustang Island gets its name from the wild horses that roamed the island for hundreds of years. This chain of barrier islands protect miles of coastline, dunes, prairies, and wind tidal flats teeming with life. They are also a safe nesting ground for the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle and a haven for over 380 bird species.
Runners will start the race at our salty seaside bar serving as the start/finish area. Experience crashing waves, salty air, hard packed sand, ocean breezes, and open beaches on this out and back course. Wind down after the race with sand between your toes and enjoy a beer, a margarita, or seafood to mark the occasion.
