Join us this August for a fun series of shorter midweek trail races. Our goal is to offer a fun, low-key series of races designed to give newer trail runners an opportunity to dip their toes into the trail racing waters, and to offer more experienced trail racers a chance to sharpen their speed on shorter, quicker courses.

After each race, we will be providing pizza with support from the Fort Collins Running Club, and beverages with support from New Belgium Brewing.
All race participants will receive a vintage Gnar race shirt (your choice). Awards will be given out at the end of the series to top points scorers.
