Come join us for the 7th 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 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.  The series sells out every year and we expect high demand this year in particular, so register now!

(*Note:  Due to the uncertainty with permits and gatherings related to COVID-19, these race venues are subject to change.  We are committed to holding four in-person races and are hopeful that each event will happen on the regular courses, however there are certain COVID-related circumstances which may be beyond our control.)

The cost for the entire 4-race series is just $60, or $50 for paid CATs members.  Kids 12 and under are $30.  You will receive a series finisher shirt, a t-shirt for the Mint Springs Trail 5k, the Summer Series BBQ/Cookout at the last race, as well as other finisher awards and top finisher awards throughout the series!    For the CATS member discount, go to to see if you're a current paid CATS member - if so, login using your Runsignup login information and your discount will be applied automatically at checkout.  If you're not a member, we would love to have you signup!
