Summer Trail Run Series

2015 Summer Trail Run Series Presented by Marmot

Thursdays in August (6, 13, 20, 27) • 6:15 pm • Castlewood State Park (Ballwin, Mo.)

Alpine Shop and Marmot invite you to turn four typical Thursday nights this August into true Adventure! Early Bird registration is about to end for the 2015 Summer Trail Run Series Presented by Marmot and time’s almost up on the best deal.

Featuring four different courses (a new one each week), we’ll cover distances of anywhere from 3.5 miles to 4+ over terrain as varied as hills, meadows, stairs and even creek crossings. And after it all, we’ll treat you to complimentary food and beverages and massages and adjustments from Optimal Performance Center!

Summer Trail Run Series RegistrantsThe first 200 Series Registrants are guaranteed to receive a Marmot Short Sleeve Race Tee ($30 value) with a custom Summer Trail Run Series logo as part of your registration. Due to regulations from the Missouri State Park System, we are required to cap registrations at a total of 250 runners per race. While walk-up registrations may be available the night of the run, we do encourage all runners to pre-register on-line.

Note: Individual race registrants may also purchase a shirt for the low price of $15 (while available and only with a valid race registration).

Prizes (also provided by Marmot) will be awarded in both the men’s and women’s open division as well as in our Golden Masters division (over 50). Plus, you can also earn points in the first round of the 2015 Off-Road Racing League with a chance at more than $500 in prizes.

Note: Due to some website issues earlier this week, Early Bird Registration will be reopened until end of day Friday, July 3.

Registration for all four races is just $67 through Tuesday, June 30 Friday, July 3. After that, prices will go up.
