The Longhorn River ranch is located just outside of Austin in Dripping Springs, Tx which will be a great central location for a Run n Gun. Teaming with exotic and native wildlife you are sure to see some amazing animals on the course. Additionally with 1,600 acres of rolling meadows, breathtaking hilltop overlooks, and winding riverbanks competitors will enjoy the scenery as they trek along the courses.

The Event:

As part of the Texas Run n Gun Series, the Longhorn River Run n Gun will be held in a standard competition format. We will be offering the following competitions:

  • Saturday

    • 10k: The 10k will be an outer loop of the ranch. 7 Stages - Rifle 60 / Pistol 50 (estimated)

  • Sunday

    • 5k: The 5k will be an inner loop of the ranch. 5 Stages - Rifle 50 / Pistol 40 (estimated)

  • Saturday/Sunday

    • Challenge Stages: Pistol Steel Challenge, Rifle Challenge, Combo Challenge, PRS Challenge


The 5k and 10k courses will be mostly separate and unique courses. We anticipate sharing 1 stage between the two days. 

Prior to the event we will update the round count but will not release the stage descriptions.


Challenge Stages:

Challenge Stages are open to all competitors and spectators for participation throughout the duration of the event! Competitors can purchase tickets for as many rounds as they can handle. There is no limit on the number of times you can shoot each Challenge Stage; compete several times and use your best score to try and win a prize. Use these events to warm up before you enter the course or compete against friends to prove once and for all who is the best marksman of the group. There will be a separate prize and trophy for each Challenge Stage during the awards ceremony on Sunday.
