The Franklin Mountains Weekend

November 9 - November 11

This is truly, one of our favorite Texas venues, so we are excited to be heading back to El Paso! This three day, Trail Racing Over Texas race has a little bit of something for everyone. Three days of running, mountains and views!

The Franklins are the largest sustained mountain range in Texas, with the summit of North Franklin Peak rising to an elevation of 7,192 feet, approximately 3,000 feet above the city below. On the eastern flank of North Franklin Mountain lie the remnants of our nation’s only tin mining, milling, and smelting operation, which was active from 1910 through 1915.

We will be bringing with us to El Paso: Shoes, summer and mountain apparel, socks by Stance, Swiftwick and Drymax, nutrition, hydration packs, Hoka Ora Slides and Goodr Sunglasses.
