2020 was an incredible year on the trails, with virtual runners joining us from all over the country. This year, The Trail Run will be have a 5K trail run and a 10K trail run to challenge our veteran runners, plus our virtual runs that reach individuals all over the state. On July 17th our race will end with an awards ceremony and a fun after-party complete with food, drinks and music. This year, bring your friends, family, and professional cheer squad out to cheer you on at the finish line and enjoy this special event.

  • Run the Trail Run 5K, 10K or Memorial Mile in person with us at Turkey Mountain on July 17, 2021
  • Run the SAME Tess Trail Run 2021 course at Turkey Mountain as a virtual trail runner! Runners will receive course files that can be uploaded into Strava to track your race. Then, runners enter their time into the race website.
  • Run a virtual 5K or 10K from anywhere! Track your distance and time whatever apps you prefer, then upload your time into the race website. Runners have 2 weeks to complete their run from anywhere.

All runners receive a finisher medal and a super soft Tess Trail Run 2021 t-shirt, and for our 10 year anniversary, we want to remember the reason The Tess Trail Run began. In 2011, this event was a special remembrance walk for those who had experienced the death of someone important to them, and we know many of our runners are still hitting the trails in memory of someone they love. This year, we will have special shirt colors so you can honor your loved one and share their memory. Whether you're running for a family member, a dear friend, or to let other grievers know that their stories matter and they are not alone, there's a color for you.

Let's hit the trails together this year for hope and healing!
