Waco, TX

The Most Badass Race in Texas

ARE YOU READY FOR BADASS TEXAS? Accept the challenge of THE legendary Badass Texas Half, 10K, and 5K. The courses run along the Brazos River, through Cameron Park, East Brazos Park, and Washington Bridge with spectacular views and of course... hills. Join us at Waco Running Company on Saturday, May 27 for Late Registration and Packet Pick Up. We will have Run Project and Badass Texas Gear for purchase as well as special offers from Waco Running Company for last-minute race supplies, and a celebration of all things Waco! Following Saturday’s packet pickup, join us for the Badass Texas "Shakeout Run" at Coach's BBQ for some cold beer and BBQ after the run. The Badass Texas race starts and ends at Heritage Square Downtown on Sunday morning. Celebrate your finish at the finish line festival with good friends and free beer, an after-party almost as legendary as the race! Stay in Waco and spend your Memorial Day visiting Waco’s museums, vineyards, Magnolia, & more.
