Directions to LBJ National Grasslands

The race start is TADRA Point at the LBJ National Grasslands (Linked to Google Map for reference only). In most cases Google Maps are good enough to get to the site. Cell coverage is pretty good to Decatur. However, as you get closer to the race site cell coverage can be spotty in some places along the way. Please don’t depend solely on your GPS! Have a backup and plan on arriving early so you have time to park, pay the day use fee ($6), and pick up your timing chip before your race. 

IMPORTANT: As you get closer to the race site we will have large signs that say “TRAIL RUN” with directional arrows pointing the way. We have set up these signs to make sure traffic to the race site is orderly and so we can quickly direct everyone into the parking area.
