Burning Pine Run - 2016

The Burning Pine 10k, 5k, & Jr. Ranger Run commemorates the anniversary of the 2011 wildfires that devastated the beautiful Lost Pines and celebrates the strength and resilience of the Bastrop community. 


Proceeds from the event are donated to the Bastrop State Park to plant new trees to replace the ones that were lost and to the Bastrop YMCA to provide much needed community services to those who would not otherwise be able to participate because of financial limitations.


This year, the Burning Pine Run will take place on Saturday, Sept. 10th in Bastrop State Park. You can sign up for the 10k, 5k, or 1k Junior Ranger Run. Late registration pricing takes effect at 12:01am on Tuesday, Aug. 23rd. (Shirts are not guaranteed during late registration.) Click here for more information, including pricing.


This is a certified race course with chip timing and many award categories, including 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in multiple age groups for males and females in both the 10k and 5k, as well as 1st through 5th place awards in the Junior Ranger Run. Every racer will get a custom finisher's medal.


The 10k begins at 7:30am, the 5k begins at 7:45am, and the Junior Ranger Run starts at 9:30am. For the full schedule, click here.


Want to help out but don't want to run? You can choose to be a volunteer (click here for more info), or you can register as a "Sleep-In" participant. Sleep-In registrants don't have to show up for the race and will receive the race t-shirt and swag by mail. The registration fee for Sleep-In participation is $35/person. More info here.

This is the 5th Anniversary of the Burning Pine Run, so register today and... 
Run Your Ash Off!!!
