Rogue 30-K and Half Marathon Distance Festival Set for Sunday in Cedar Park

Bell Wealth ManagementFor the second year, Rogue Running will present the Rogue Distance Festival. This year, the race date has been moved up two weeks before the 3M Half Marathon, rather than after it. The Distance Festival, to be held this Sunday (January 5th), will consist of three separate races: a 30-K, half marathon and 10-K as well as a kids K. But the two primary distances are the 30-K and half marathon which both count as part of the 2013-14 Austin Fit Magazine Distance Challenge.

The 30-K (18.6 miles) and half marathon both start at 7 a.m. in Cedar Park with the 10-K getting underway a half hour later. The 30-K and half are perfect distances to test fitness and long-run pacing in preparation for the final two races in the Distance Challenge—the 3M Half and the Austin Marathon and Half. The 30-K may be an unusual distance, but it’s been part of the DC series for many years, most notably with the RunTex 30-K, which was held for seven years on the rural country roads in Buda.

But the RunTex 30-K disappeared from the Distance Challenge after the 2005 race and since then, the distance and its venues have been spotty. Now that it’s back, the DC has greater variety of distances and challenges.

The Rogue race is the fourth of the six DC races with the biggies—the 3M Half on January 19th and Austin Marathon and Half Marathon on February 16th—still to come.

Both Rogue races will be held on loop courses and neither course is exceptionally hilly. Says Danny Spoonts of Conley Sports, who measured and certified both courses: “I would characterize the 30-K course as relatively flat with some hills. There are a lot of tight turns, but since it’s such a long race the turns shouldn’t be a problem. The first 3-4 miles of both courses are almost entirely flat and since that’s the first three miles of the 10-K course, that race is really flat too. From miles 8-10, there are some uphills, but none of them are very difficult. Certainly not as tough as the hills on the Decker course or even Austin. So I think it’s a fair course with some rolling hills that really shouldn’t be much of a problem.”

All three races will start and finish at Cedar Park High School (2150 Cypress Creek Road in Cedar Park). To get to Cedar Park HS from downtown: Head north on MoPac and take 183 north. Exit Lakeline Mall Drive and go straight to Research Blvd. Then go left on Lakeline and take it for two miles to Cypress Creek Road where you go left.

There is still time to enter all three races. Packet pick and registration will be held Friday (10-7) and Saturday (10-6) at both locations of Rogue Running. The downtown location is at 500 San Marcos Street and the Cedar Park store is 2800 East Whitestone Blvd.

The weather for Sunday morning should be ideal with temps in the low to mid-40s.
