The Big Bend Ultra Virtual
The premier run in Big Bend Ranch State Park!
January 17, 2021
UPDATE - The race was a great success with virtual runs from as far away as Germany and New York. The Virtual event has been extended to March 20, the first day of Spring, to give everybody an opportunity participate and support the Park. We still have awesome "soon to be vintage" swag while supplies last.

It's a virtual run this year!
The Big Bend Ultra is the Park's premier competitive trail run for amateur and professional athletes. It is sponsored by Friends of Big Bend Ranch State Park (formerly Compadres del Rancho Grande) to benefit the Big Bend Ranch State Park Complex.
For years, the Big Bend Ultra has offered chip-timed 10K, 20K, 30K, 50K, and 50M courses through BBRSP’s challenging topography and inspiring landscape.
This year, COVID-19 has resulted in a unique virtual experience to benefit the Park and have some fun. Register as a runner and send in your distance and time -- with photos if you got 'em. Or register as a donor.
You'll receive a truly memorable 2021 medal and logo neck gaiter.
Register HERE to run or donate.
We'll miss all the VOLUNTEERS that make it happen -- Friends of Big Bend Ranch State Park volunteers that set up the courses, check in runners, host aid stations and many, many other critical tasks. We'll miss the BIKE VOLUNTEERS that help with safety, and manage the course set up.
And we'll miss all the RUNNERS, FAMILY and FRIENDS!
Next year, we hope to see you all again, out here, on the other side of nowhere!
