The 18th annual Sunmart Texas Trail Endurance Runs, scheduled for December 8 in Huntsville State Park, will have the co-title of the IAU (International Association of Ultramarathoners) Trail World Challenge for the 50-Miler and the 50K events. In 2006 Sunmart was given a tryout as the IAU Trail World Challenge and overwhelmingly satisfied the criteria for hosting an IAU event.
The 50-mile race and 50 kilometer event are expected to attract over 1,000 ultra-marathoners from more than 40 states and 14 countries. The 50 mile route is composed of four 12.5 - mile loops through the park’s extensive trail network. The 50K route covers a two-loop course. The 50-mile event begins at 7 a.m., with the 50K race set to start at 7:30 a.m. at Huntsville State Park, which is 60 miles north of Houston. This year’s event will give cash awards in both the men’s and women’s field for both the 50-Miler and the 50K.
Sunmart’s popularity as one of the premier ultra events in the United States is well established. Sunmart has a scenic course in the piney woods of Southeastern Texas, smiling and helpful volunteers, great food and plentiful race premiums. The addition of a world-class international field will only add to the race’s reputation and commitment to excellence.
