About the Southeastern Trail Series
In an effort to promote trail running and introduce new runners to the trails, Southeastern Trail Runs has created a series of seven races beginning in April of 2014. We will start with runs as short as 3 and 6 miles and slowly build distance through the spring, summer and fall, culminating in an Ultra distance race in November. Runners that follow the series and build up training distance will be ready for the 50K in November. Those that wish to go further can continue to build distance over the winter. By the end of March of 2014, they will 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 and offer 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. This year the Birmingham Track Club Free Race will earn points toward the overall Trail Series Points Championship.
Local time: 5:45 AM

You are registering for either all the short races or all the long races. The Short Races includes the Run for Kids 10K and the two day option (Saturday/Sunday) for the Birmingham Stage Race. The Long Races include all the long events including all 3 days of the Birmingham Stage Race. This option will also register you for the Run for Kids 10K. If you prefer to enter the Run for Kids 50K or 12 Hour you may apply the full value of the 10K, $35, to either the 50K or 12 Hour distances. Points earned in the 50K or 12 Hour races will apply to the Ultra Series not the Southeastern Trail Series. IF you have any questions please contact me directly.
