To create a welcoming community that gives both new and experienced trail runners a place to ask questions, find running partners, and explore all the things that make trail running an amazing escape from the ordinary workout.
  • Work with local parks and trail systems to help maintain and build new trails that can be enjoyed by all.
  • Host races and events that are not only totally awesome, but also act as fundraisers for the local parks and trail systems.
  • Be friendly and make sure all our area trails are happy trails.
