Trail Running Series

Next date: Friday, September 25, 2020 | 07:00 AM to Thursday, October 01, 2020 | 08:00 PM

Two runners take part in a series race.

The annual Trail Series is back this September with a new self-directed system to keep you safe! This year, explore Bear Creek Lake Park while staying safely distanced with our self-directed racing system. Each week, you will run pre-marked routes on your own schedule. After your run, upload a photo of your race and we'll enter you into our weekly prize drawings.
