Texas Independence Relay & Handbook of Texas

Special to the Courier

On March 28-29, Team TSHA will tackle the 200-mile course of the Texas Independence Relay, one of the most grueling relay races in the entire state. Running day and night, the team of historians and Texas-minded runners will retrace the route of the Texas Revolution from its beginning in Gonzales to its end at San Jacinto in just 28 hours.
Why are they running? To raise funds and support for the Handbook of Texas, TSHA's comprehensive online encyclopedia of more than 26,000 entries about Texas history. Last year, the Handbook received 11.8 million page views from 226 countries. Keeping the Handbook updated, comprehensive, and freely available to the millions interested in Texas history requires sustained support. So, Team TSHA will run 200 miles in just 28 hours to raise funds for the Handbook.
