Trail Runner Trophy SeriesInformation for Race Directors

Registration for the 2018 Trophy Series – DEADLINE Feb. 28, 2018

A limited number of trail races can participate in the Trail Runner Trophy Series, so the sooner you act, the better chance your event has of being accepted. Please note that registering your race for the Trail Runner race calendar (which you can do any time in the year) is not the same as registering for the Trophy Series. All Trophy Series races must be between March 1, 2018, and September 30, 2018.
