After 4 years, we have decided not to continue the Rogue Distance Festival (10K and 30K) in 2017. This was a very difficult decision for us, and one we did not come to lightly. After evaluating several options and given ongoing constraints surrounding the course and road closures, we do not believe we can produce a race that is both safe for everyone and represents the level of quality that we believe in.
We would like to thank the Austin and Cedar Park running communities plus our partners and sponsors through the years for supporting the event, especially the Distance Challenge, Austin Runners Club, the City of Cedar Park, the Cedar Park Police Department, the Cedar Park Citizens Policy Academy Alumni Association, Cedar Park High School, Project Graduation, and Leander ISD. It has been a privilege to work with each of you!
The Distance Challenge will enter its 20th year in 2016 and will announce the slate of races for the upcoming season in early March. We are excited to continue supporting the DC through our sponsorships of the Run Free Texas 8K and the Decker Challenge Half Marathon. In addition, we will continue producing the Rogue Trail Series (10K and 30K distances) and are excited for the upcoming race dates for that series – April 3rd, April 24th, and May 22nd.
