PARK CITY TRAIL SERIES 5K
June 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Are you looking for something new? Is road running becoming monotonous and boring? Are you looking to change up your routine but want to stay running? The Park City Trail Series is a 4-race series designed to introduce new trail runners to the sport. The series is a 5k, 10k, 15k, and 13.1 All of the events are on the Round Valley Trails in Park City, Utah. Due to the ease of terrain, these trail runs are designed with beginner users in mind. However, with well marked courses and the regularly placed aid stations, these races are also great speed training for more advanced trail users.
Starting in June and ending in September you run a series of increasing longer races once a month. Perfectly spaced for training adaption and stunning in scenery, the Park City Trail Series transports you from running around the city block to striding through the beauties of nature.
Each race features a Park City Trail Series signature pint glass with a native animal logo as a reminder that nature isn’t far away!
NEW FOR 2016:
The Park City Trail Series Half Marathon is now the final race in the Mountain Trails Triple Trail Challenge
THE TRIPLE TRAIL CHALLENGE Includes: (registration is separate)
- Jupiter Peak Steeplechase – July 30th, 2016: A 16 mile loop from Park City Mountain Resort (7,000′) to the top of Jupiter Peak (10,000′) and back down.
- Mid Mountain Marathon – August 27th, 2016: A full marathon distance on the Mid Mountain Trail, a stunningly scenic single-track trail begins at just under 8100′ and peaks out at 8400′ as it traverses Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain Resort and The Colony before descending to The Canyons base area at 6800′.
- NEW for 2016, the Park City Half Trail Marathon – September 17th, 2016: As some may know, the Park City Half Marathon and 5K have been cancelled. We are very excited to have the third event be the Park City Half Trail marathon in it’s place though to round out the Triple Trail Challenge. This is the most challenging course in the Park City Trail Series and the grand finale of Mountain Trails TCC. Without any single hill being overwhelming on its own, the sum of its parts is what bends the mind and body during this race. This is not a course for a first time trail runner, but it is a goal worthy of pursuit.
