El Scorcho Run 25/50K
El Scorcho continues the spectacularly foolish tradition of staging an endurance run at midnight in Texas in the middle of the summer. This is the best no-frills 50K frolic in all of Fort Worth. A 25K option is offered to those who aren't too sure about running 50K in the middle of the night, but still want in on the fun. Participants get a shirt and a medal. Rumor has it that the 50K finishers get something else too.
El Scorcho takes place at Trinity Park in Fort Worth, Texas. Participants circle a fast, flat 5K loop along the banks of the Trinity River over a mix of crushed limestone, asphalt, concrete sidewalk, a couple of foot bridges and a basketball court.
