New for 2012, USA Track and Field of Minnesota is having a Mountain/Ultra/Trail (MUT) Series and Trail Championship!
The series will consist of 5 trail races ranging from 5K to 25K. Since none of them are ultras or take place on mountains, I guess we’ll just call it a Trail Series 😉
The races are:
Chester Woods 10 Mile, Saturday, June 2
Afton Trail Run 25K, Saturday, July 7
TC Running Company Trail Series Race, August TBD
Salomon Autumn Trail Series Race, Wednesday, September 5
Muscle Milk Woodsy Full Woodsy (8.9 miles), Saturday, September 15
The Afton 25K will also be the Minnesota Trail Championship race, taking place on July 7 at Afton State Park. Word is, there will be prize money for the top three men and women in the open and masters categories (amount still to be determined).
