A series of running competitions are slated to debut soon at Pioneer Farms, in a new partnership with Trail Roots that will promote history and fitness at the same time.

  The Pioneer Trail 5K races are coming up on Saturday, Oct. 17, on our walking path- ways that trace the routes of the historic Chisholm Trail and early-day trade roads in the area.

  The run will occur in the mornings, with a start time of 8:30 a.m., before the museum opens for the day. Registration includes a t-shirt, refreshments and admission to the museum for the day. Refreshments will be available

  Erik Stanley, owner and principal running coach at Trail Roots, said the races will offer runners a unique opportunity in a new venue much different than other Austin events.
