When previewing the course prior to race day, you must travel approx. three quarters of a mile east on FM 346 off of concession road in order to start the course on Blackjack road. This section will be omitted on race day as the city will allow us passage thru the closed section of road leading from the race site to Blackjack road. This is to save you the mental & physical pain of heavy chip seal, courtesy our friends at TXDoT. You will only be crossing over FM 346 on race day. This is for both the Olympic & the Half.
