Final Race week details: This year’s Rockledge Rumble is SOLD OUT. At this time, we are no longer allowing transfers and cannot accept anyone else from our wait list. We are very sorry we can’t accommodate everyone who wants to run. There will be NO registrations or transfers at packet pickup or on race morning. Thank you for your interest and we hope you join us for the 20th Annual Grasslands Trail Run in March or next year’s race.
Below is a complete schedule for packet pick up and race morning. We have sent several emails but have heard that not everyone is getting those emails. Please check your SPAM folder. We have also provided links to each email below the schedule. Most of this information is also on our website–either this page or other pages under the “Runner Info” tab. Note–we are running around, getting ready for the race. We apologize for the impersonal auto response.

Aid Station Information
This is a cup-less race. Please bring your own hydration device to carry and consume fluids on the course. Water and Tailwind will be available at all aid stations along with bananas, oranges, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, soda, Oreo cookies, potato chips, and a whole lot more. We like to have fun at the aid stations and mix it up just a little each year while keeping people’s favorites. See Aid Station page for complete details of miles and distances between aid stations.
Supplies for 50K and 30K participants can be left in a drop bag at the aid station near the start/finish. Remember to pick up your drop bag after the race.
Time Cut Off
All 50K/30K participants must be past the Murrell Park aid station no later than 2:30 p.m. (50K: mile 26.7; 30K: mile 14.4) This cut off will be strictly enforced out of respect for all volunteers and the timing company.
Registration and Refund Policy
We understand that sometimes your plans change. Refunds are allowed if requested six weeks before the race. We will refund 75% of your registration price, not included the transaction fee.
We allow changes in race distance as long as we still have openings in that distance. If you are moving to a longer distance, you will need to pay the difference. If you are moving to a shorter distance, you will not get that difference back.
We allow bib transfers until one week prior to the race. If you are interested in transferring your bib to a friend, you must contact us by sending email to email@example.com. It is very important for the safety of all runners that we have contact and medical information. If the shirt order has already been placed, your friend will need to accept the shirt size that you ordered.
In the week of the race, we are focused on making sure the trail and race is ready for all runners. If you contact us during race week, we will not reply and the transfer is not allowed. No exceptions.
The Rockledge Rumble was founded in 1996 by Fred Holmes and Jay Norman. The race was created to raise funds for the U.S. team to attend and compete in the 100K World Championship. Other race directors were Tom Crull and Cindy Melder. In 2015, Chris Barnwell became the volunteer race director of the Grasslands Trail Run. In 2016, Chris acquired both Grasslands and the Rockledge Rumble Trail Run with the goal to continue these Texas traditions for many years to come.
A special thank you to all past participants and volunteers. This race is great because of the community support. Thank you for returning year after year!
