Have you heard about stage racing? It’s a marriage of expedition hiking and ultra-running that takes you to remote and epic destinations unlike any other race experience.
Learn why multi-stage events are gaining popularity and get a behind the scenes look at Trans-Pecos Ultra. Discover why the Chihuahuan Desert and the rugged wilderness of Big Bend, one of the most remote regions in the US, answers the call for adventure and travel.
Trans-Pecos Ultra is a 10-day event designed to bring out the wild in our souls. Open to hikers and runners of all levels, participants live in the virgin wilderness for a week and traverse a total of 170 trail miles over 7 days.
