Trophy Series

Welcome to the 2017 Trophy Series!

The Trail Runner Trophy Series is a points-based series of trail races in the United States and Canada. All events are divided into two categories: Non-marathon (races shorter than 26 miles) and Marathon & Longer (races 26 miles and longer).

 

Altra Running has signed on as Presenting Sponsor of 2017 Trail Runner Trophy Series. With Altra's support, we'll be sending the Trophy Series runner who logs the most miles in 2017 to Switzerland for a trip with Run the Alps. The person who finishes the most Trophy Series races will be featured on the March 2018 cover of Trail Runner.

GRAND PRIZE

We have two 2017 Trophy Series grand prizes. The Trophy Series runner who logs the most miles in 2017 in Trophy Series races will win a trip to Switzerland with the Tour Du Mont Blanc from Run the Alps. The prize will include a travel voucher for economy airfare, the tour, and food accommodations and food during the tour. The tiebreaker for this prize will be based on finishing race times. The person who runs and finishes the most Trophy Series races this year as a competitor will be featured on the March 2018 cover of Trail Runner. The tie-breaker for this prize will be the runner who completes the most miles.

The Marathon & Longer (races 26 miles and longer) Trail Runner of the Year awards will go to the top three male and female runners with the most Trophy Series points in that category.
