2021 Summer Trail Running Series

Join us for the 6th annual Charlottesville Summer Trail Running Series!  Four awesome races in and around Charlottesville and Crozet, a celebratory BBQ (if we can do it safely) at the last race, and a technical finishers shirt for those who finish the entire series, plus prizes and a ton of fun!

The distances for the races vary from 5K to 5 miles and are open to all ages, skill levels, and speeds (walkers are welcome too), subject to race registration caps.

Note:  Due to the uncertainty with permits and gatherings related to COVID-19, these race venues are subject to change.  We are committed to holding four in-person races and are hopeful that each event will happen on the regular courses, however there are certain COVID-related circumstances which may be beyond our control.  As necessary for everyone’s safety, masks will be required pre- and post-race (but not while running).  We may stagger start times for less congestion, and likely will not have manned aid stations.

Race entry: $55 / $50 for paid CAT Members. For kids 12 and under $30. CAT Members be sure to login to your RunSignup account when registering to get the $5 discount.

Not ready to commit to running all 4 races?  You can sign up for all 4 races individually, however you must register for the entire series in order to be eligible for the series finisher shirt and these races to sell out quickly.  Individual races are $10-$15 per race.  Sign up for the series is open now!  Individual race registrations will open up later.
