About the Southeastern Trail Series
In an effort to promote trail running and introduce new runners to the trails, Southeastern Trail Runs created a series of seven races, all in the Birmingham area in 2013. Again in 2016 the series will start in April with the Tranquility Lake 3 and 6 mile trail races and slowly build distance through the spring, summer and fall, culminating in an Ultra distance race in November, The Blood Rock 50 Mile and 50K. Runners that follow the series and build up training distance throughout the year will be ready for the 50K. Those that wish to go further can continue to train over the winter and by March of 2016, be ready for the Lake Martin 50 or even the Lake Martin 100. The series will consist of 7 races. Each race will offer opportunities to run further than the previous race, with more difficult terrain and more elevation gain. Participants will earn points for each event completed based on how they finished in each event. Points leaders at the end of the series will receive special awards as Southeastern Trail Challenge Points Champion. All races will take place in the Birmingham area.
If you sign up for either the full (Long) series or the short series you will receive a race shirt for all series races. The total savings for those signing up for the "Long Series" is as much as $160. You receive a significant savings in race registration fees plus you get a race shirt for all races. (And now, you my be able to save even more. The Full Series price includes the Blood Rock 50K.
