Summer Trail Series

This 4-race series takes place on the most scenic and challenging trails in Tallahassee. Each race starts in an open area, but quickly turns onto the trail. Each course offers a little bit of everything: rolling terrain, single track trails, multi-use trails, and technical sections with rocks, roots, and tight twisty turns. This is a great off-road running experience!

Registration is open at RunSignUp and is limited to 150 runners. Don’t miss out!
