What’s New in the 2015 Trail Runner Trophy Series

TR staff December 30th, 2014

Annual trail-racing cup to feature more races than ever and expanded online presence



Trail Runner’s annual Trophy Series is back for 2015, with some exciting new changes.

Over 175 trail races—more events than ever before—will take part in the Trophy Series this year. With races across the U.S. and Canada and distances from 5K to 200M—to say nothing of unique events like night races and 48-hour runs—the 2015 Trophy Series has something for every runner.

Along with more races, Trophy Series participants will have more options for sharing their race-day experiences. Runners will be able to post their race reports and photos to Trail Runner’s all-new website, which goes live this year, and share them with friends, family and fellow racers through an ongoing social-media campaign.

Thousands of racers will compete for this year’s grand prize: registration in the Golden Ultra, a three-day stage race held in the mountains around Golden, British Colombia, plus accommodations and food. Two grand prizes will be awarded: one for the runner who logs the most miles in Trophy Series events, and one for the runner who runs the most Trophy Series races.

The Trail Runner Trophy Series, now in its 11th year, is an annual series of North American trail races with regularly updated points standings. Last year, more than 30,000 runners competed for prizes in non-ultra, ultra, most-miles and most-races categories.
