If you’re traveling from Dallas or other cities East of Rough Creek Lodge:

HOST HOTEL
Holiday Inn Express Glen Rose
113 Paluxy Summit Blvd
Glen Rose, TX 76043

You must call to get the discounted rate and reference that you are with the "Active Joe Run" and you can even help more by telling them it's code AJR in their system. The hotel has been incredibly gracious to offer a special rate for all race participants of $119/night for double queen beds and $129/night for a single king bed when you call to reserve. Give them a call to reserve your room(s) before they sell out: (254) 898-9900

This is a great deal as this is a nice Holiday Inn, and that weekend the standard rate for double queen beds is $159, so I'm glad they can give us a great deal!

 

If you’re traveling from West of Rough Creek Lodge:

Hampton Inn Stephenville
910 South Harbin Drive
Stephenville, TX  76401

Rates from $115

 

 

 

***There are other events occurring in the Glen Rose-area on the weekend of September 17th, so we strongly encourage you to reserve rooms as soon as possible.

If a luxury stay with the convenience of being able to walk to the start line, and fine dining after you finish the race is your preference, then staying on property at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is a great option. “Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is a casually elegant retreat nestled on 11,000 acres that offers incredibly fine dining, exceptional service, and a luxurious ranch-style venue for couples, families and businesses looking for a truly unique experience.”

PLACES TO HAVE FUN

While at Rough Creek for the weekend, there are multiple unique entertainment options:

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center is an exotic animal ranch that spans 1,400 acres. The 9-mile driving tour is full of encounters with many different animals. Fossil Rim is a short 20 minute drive from Rough Creek Lodge and even shorter 10 minute drive from the Glen Rose hotels.

 

Dinosaur World is a fun, family attraction highlighting the prehistoric past of Glen Rose & Dinosaur Valley State Park. Located right outside the entrance of Dinosaur Valley State Park, it’s a great place for the kids to get exercise and see life-size dinosaur species.

 

 

 

Take a throwback trip to The Brazos Drive-In Theatre to grab some popcorn, tune in and turn up the radio, and enjoy a drive-in movie. About a 40 minute drive from Rough Creek Lodge, but still worth highlighting because these vintage opportunities are few and far between.

 

 

Finishing a trail race is cause for celebration.

We trust that you will be responsible, but an adult beverage is a common way to celebrate. Specifically if you’re traveling back to the D/FW-area, a stop on your return trip might include Revolver Brewing or Firestone & Robertson Distilling (book a reservation ahead of time for Firestone & Robertson).
