What you need to know about trail running:

  1. It’s mentally refreshing and de-stressing and less physically punishing than running on concrete
  2. You’re going to run slower – don’t worry about your Garmin or your watch as you cross the finish line.  You’ll run on average 25% slower on the trail. It’s about the journey, folks.
  3. People walk in trail races.  And its ok.
  4. You have to ask to pass someone in trail races on a single-track trail.  (“Mmmm, passing, s’il vous plait?”)
  5. It’s a all-natural adventure race with Mother-Nature-made obstacles – streams, roots, hills, fallen trees — not fabricated by a race director.

Our Mission is . . .

To encourage women to experience the playfulness and challenge of off-road running.

To offer an accessible introduction to trail running for women and an opportunity participate in a trail race in a supportive and fun environment.

To be good stewards of the environment in which we run.
