About this Race Series

Upstate Trail & Ultra Series in 2023 will be hosting the 5th Annual age group competition! The series will be comprised of 10 different events throughout the year. Upstate Ultra has been hosting a wide range of trail and road events since 2013. 

*You are entered in the age group category based off of your age on December 31st of this year. You may still place in your current age group category for the individual races but the series is scored based on your end of year age. 

 

Athletes are automatically entered into the series when they register for any race and are scored automatically with our timing software. To ensure automatic scoring please use the same RunSignUp profile when registering for any Upstate Race Series event.

 

Whether it is your first time lacing up your running shoes or the 100th time you have completed an ultra we have the course, the distance, and the atmosphere to ensure your race weekend is challenging but rewarding. Let us be your "Sherpa" for the weekend as we lead you from starting line to finish line!
