Come join us for the 8th annual Charlottesville Summer Trail Running Series!  This is a fun, relaxed, low-cost summer trail running series with 4 trail races from 5K to 5-miles in distance, all in the Charlottesville/Crozet area.  In addition to individual race prizes, there will be overall and top age group finisher prizes for the series, based upon cumulative total time in all 4 races.

Runners who complete all 4 races in the series will receive a Summer Series Finisher technical running shirt at the last race, and runners completing 3 out of 4 races will receive a cotton finishers shirt.  Runners must register for the series in advance to be eligible for the Series Finisher Shirt.  Additionally, all runners will receive a t-shirt for the first race.  There will also be age group awards for both men and women in the top three in the following age groups for each race as well as for the entire series:  Kids 12-U, 13-17, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.  The series races sell out every year and we continue to expect high demand this year, so register now!
