The next race on my calendar? Run by the Creek in Dripping Springs.

The event is set for Sunday, Nov. 2, and if you’re thinking of registering, do it today. Entry fee is $35 for the 10K or $25 for the 5K through tonight, but prices increase by $10 tomorrow.

Or tell me why you want to join me. I’m giving away two free entries to run, and will pick the winners from the comments posted below this blog.It’s the third year of the run, which drew more than 300 athletes last year.

The course is one of my favorites – it follows Creek Road, a popular route for area cyclists. Expect rolling hills, a few kids in Halloween costumes possibly lurking in the trees, fields of cows, a gorgeous creek and lots of farmland.

I ran the 10K last year, and loved the small-town feel and rural setting of the event.The Dripping Springs Running Club and Pioneer Bank support the race, which this year benefits The Dripping Springs High School Cross Country team.

Packet pickup will take place Oct. 31 at Rogue Running Downtown, 410 Pressler, and Nov. 1 at Pioneer Bank in Dripping Springs.

The race starts at 8 a.m. Nov. 2 at 195 Roger Hanks Parkway in Dripping Spring. Look for me there!
