This race is designed to put you in an extreme situation both physically and mentally, but with many comforts that you don't normally get with a big loop 100. The relay will also allow you to run with a team, friends, and family to complete this monumental task. In the first year of the event we only had ONE finisher, Julie Schmal! Ever since we have put our 100mi finishers' names printed on the back of the next year's shirt. Between 2015 and 2022 only 115 people have finished the Habanero Hundred 100mi! Are you up for the challenge? Or maybe start with one of our shorter distances or team relays. Sign up your club for the relay in our highly competitive team event for both the 100k and 100mi distances.
The race is held at the beautiful 7IL ranch just outside of Bellville, Texas. The ranch has been open for more than five generations, and it was opened for public use in 1999. The facility is over 1,150 acres with water/electric and RV hookups as well.
The Habanero Hundred is set up to start at HIGH NOON, and the 30-hour cutoff will end at 6:00 PM on Sunday. All runners will receive an event shirt, the race will be chip timed, and we will have free pictures for all runners. There will be belt buckles for 100K and 100M finishers, and medals for the 10k, 20k, 30k, 40k, 50k, and Relay Teams.
The top teams in the 100M and 100k Relay will receive a special pennant. Also, the top Houston Area Road Runner's clubs will compete for their own pennants.
