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 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. This will be the third time that the 50K runners pass this aid station and the second time for the 30K runners. This cut off will be strictly enforced out of respect for all volunteers and the timing company.
Registration and Refund Policy
We understand that things come up. If you can no longer run the race, if you let us know more than one month in advance, you will receive 100% race credit for another Blaze Trails Running event. If you let us know between one month and two weeks prior to race day, you will receive 50% race credit towards another Blaze Trails Running event. We will not allow any refunds or transfers less than two weeks before race day. No exceptions.
Bib transfers to another runner are allowed up until the two weeks prior to the race only if the race has not sold out. If you are interested in transferring your bib to a friend, please contact us immediately. It is very important for the safety of all runners that we have the correct contact and medical information. If the shirt order has already been placed, your friend agrees to accept the shirt size that you ordered. A $15 administration fee (plus transaction fee) will be charged to the person who is accepting the bib transfer. We do not allow transfers if the event has sold out and have a waitlist. In that case, we will follow the posted refund policy and allow the next person on the wait list to register. We require transfers to be completed no later than two weeks prior to the race. This allows us to keep our focus on producing the event and other important race details during the race week. If you contact us in the last two weeks to ask for a transfer, we will not reply and the transfer is not allowed. No exceptions.
Refund and/or transfer requests must be made in writing by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refunds are only processed as a credit to a future event.
I further understand that I am not entitled to a refund if the race director and/or race officials are forced to cancel the race due to any participant safety issue on the course that is out of the race organizer’s control. This may include, but is not limited to flooding, lightning or any other weather condition that makes the course unsafe for participants.

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!
