Come join us for the 7th annual Mint Springs Trail 5K (formerly Crozet Running Trail 5k) at Mint Springs Valley Park in beautiful Crozet, Virginia.  This is a family friendly event, but is also a challenging trail 5K course for runners of any experience level.  The course winds up Bucks Elbow Mountain, through beautiful single track trails with views of the valley below, and finally winds around the ponds before finishing by the playground above the lakes. This is a great event for top runners, families, and hikers alike!

All finishers receive a free T-shirt and can say they've finished "The Toughest 5K in the Commonwealth!"

 (*Note:  Due to the uncertainty with permits and gatherings related to COVID-19, this race venue is subject to change.  We are committed to an in-person race and are hopeful that this event will happen on the regular course, however there are certain COVID-related circumstances which may be beyond our control.)

This is also the first race in the 6th annual Charlottesville Summer Trail Running Series - CLICK HERE if you would like to instead register for the entire 4-race series for just $55 - that includes the registration and a shirt for this race, registration for the other 3 races, a technical fabric finishers shirt at the end of the series (if you finish at least 3 of the 4 races), plenty of prizes and awards, and a post-series BBQ!
