State Park Series
Welcome to Trail Maniacs State Park Series. For 2016 we are so excited to welcome REI into our trail running family. Trust me you do not want to miss these races! REI will be onsite for each of the five races in the series providing cooking demos and a complete set up of their top of the line camping equipment and games for you and your family to enjoy and demo. Bring your family and stay the weekend! We are also excited to announce that Saucony is coming back as our official shoe sponsor for 2016.
SPS will include five state parks from two states (Idaho and Washington) one race per month from May thru October. SPS will have over $3,000.00 in prizes for the overall series. We will also continue with the Friday evening potluck and Sunday morning social run tradition as well! We will provide the pasta (regular and gluten free) for the Friday evening potluck meal.
SPS is a trail run point series, including 5 mile and half marathon distances. We will count your best 4 out of 5 races in the series. BUT its okay if you only want to run one or two of the races! Trust me, you and your family will enjoy it! Pick the race that fits your schedule best and I look forward to meeting you.
What if I am new to trail running? These races are perfect for you, start with the 5 mile runs and give it a shot.
***Saucony will be at this event with shoe demos! Saucony will be showcasing a NEW trail shoe... the Nomad! I can't wait :) ***
This year we want you to think of us as your “trail running family” like I have said in the past: “our races are like a family reunion but with people you enjoy!” So this year we will be incorporating a Friday evening potluck meal (we provide the pasta) and a Sunday social run. Plan on staying the weekend at our races and enjoy what these great state parks have to offer.
What if I only want to run one or two of the races? That’s not a problem, pick the race that fits your schedule best and I look forward to meeting you.
What if I am new to trail running? These races are perfect for you, start with the 5 mile runs and work your way up from there.
