We can’t think of anything more fun than running around the woods at night with your friends.  Come race Too Cool’s night only race at beautiful Colorado Bend State Park.  The Howl Adventure Race offers something for everyone.  Both the 2-4 hr sport sprint and the 4-8 hour adventure sprint will have mountain biking, trail running, caving and paddling. We are stoked to have Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine cover the Howl  as part of their Year of Epic Texas Challenges!
