Gulf Winds Summer Trail Series

Summer Trail Series Logo

The 4‐race series will take place on the most scenic and challenging trails in Tallahassee. This will be a great off road running experience! Each race will start in an open area, but soon lead onto the trail.

Each course will offer a little bit of everything: rolling terrain, single track trails, multi‐use trails, and technical sections with rocks, roots, and tight twisty turns.

Pre‐register for the 4‐race series at a discount—pay for three races and run the fourth FREE! Runners may also register for individual events. Check gulfwinds.org and our Facebook events page for updates.

Awards: Awards will be given to the top male and female runners at each event and at the end of the series—Overall, Master (age 40), and Grandmaster (age 50).
