Race Information

The Wasatch Trail Run Series takes place spring through summer Wednesday evenings on the dirt trails of open space preserves and ski resorts along the Wasatch Front in Utah. The Wednesday evening races offer both a short course (3-5 miles) and long course (7-9 miles) accommodating the needs of all skill levels. Each race concludes with a give-away for participants composed of a table loaded with outdoor retail items (shoes, packs etc.) donated by sponsors. Participants are placed in age based/sex categories and accumulate series points from each race. Awards are given at the end of season to the participants in each category who accumulate the most points.
