A favorite race
The Run by the Creek holds a special place in my heart.
The race, which follows Creek Road outside Dripping Springs, marks the first running event where I actually won my age group.
Yes, it was a tiny age group. I don’t care. I treasure my carved wooden medal and always will.
The run is mostly flat, with some small rolling hills in the middle and an uphill finish. It crosses a creek, passes lots of gorgeous farmland and makes you want to moo at the cows in pastures you pass. (At least that’s what it did for me.)
I missed the race last year but am heading back on Nov. 8 to try to reclaim my moment of glory. You should come.
Participants can choose from a 5K or 10K. I’m planning on the longer version.
Registration is $45 for the 10K or $35 for the 5K. The race starts at 8 a.m. at 195 Roger Hanks Parkway in Dripping Springs.
Packet pickup is Nov. 6 at Rogue Running, 410 Pressler Street, and Nov. 7 at Pioneer Bank Dripping Springs. Race day registration is available from 6:30 to 7:45 a.m.
