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.

    When will online registration for the ‘Meltdown’ run on Aug 11 be up? This might just be my August race as I strive for one race a month! Thanks!

      We will open registration to the Late Summer Meltdown this Saturday, when the other (Camp Holiday Trails 5mi) race takes place.

    I registered for the summer series when I registered for the CR 5k at Mint Springs, but can’t see where I’m registered for the other 3 races. Is there a way I can confirm that I’m registered please? Thanks!

      We send an email to the registered runners. No race day sign ups. Race is full. It’s happening though if you were asking about that.

    I’ve been out of the loop but up above in this string it shows that the Boars Head race is not crossed through. Does that mean it is on?

      Hi Peter, we are making final plans for it and will be making an announcement in the next couple of days.
