Nearly 180 years ago the Republic of Texas gained its independence from Mexico. From the first shot in Gonzalez to the final battle at San Jacinto, Texians and Tejanos fought together for independence and freedom.
To commemorate the epic series of events that led to Texas’ Independence, runners from all over the United States and beyond gather together and run 200 miles in an event known as the “Texas Independence Relay”. More than 100 12 person teams leave from Gonzalez and make their way to San Jacinto. Running continuously through day and night the teams finally land on the same battle ground where General Sam Houston and his small army defeated President Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana.
The Sun & Ski Renegades are setting out on their 5th TIR on March 28th. This team is made up of Sun & Ski employees, ambassadors and friends who look forward to the challenge and team work that is necessary to complete this awesome race!
COME AND TAKE IT!!
