On Saturday the 50M, and on Sunday the 50k will cross the Colorado River via boat. The LCRA will be guiding/crewing these boats across the Colorado River. You will be in a boat between 8-12 people at time, you will be asked to paddle the boat across and your feet will get wet along this path. Once on the other side you will complete a loop on the Double Horn side and then come back across the river. You will have to wear a life jacket and the boats are scheduled to leave in increments faster than 5 minutes at a time. We will have a TROT volunteer assisting the LCRA as well moving the runners back and forth.
The trails across the river are not open to the public and have never been run on before. Most of the trails are being cut just for the Colorado Crossing runners. The race is on the Colorado River so you will have a great opportunity to spend time all weekend along the banks.
The trails on the Shaffer Bend side are small rollers with very little technical terrain. Expect fast trails and wide pathways. https://www.strava.com/activities/1128910074
The trails on the Double Horn side are cross country style trails that are mowed 6 feet wide for the trail runners.
