Welcome to the 8th Annual Southeastern Trail Series
In an effort to promote trail running and introduce new runners to the trails, Southeastern Trail Runs created a series of six races, all in the Birmingham area in 2013. Again in 2020 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 December with The Blood Rock 25 & 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 will be ready for the Lake Martin 50 or even the Lake Martin 100. The series will consist of 6 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 Series Points Champions. All races will take place in the Birmingham area.
Sign up for the Full Long Series or the Full Short Series before April 1st and save 20%. You will receive a Race Shirt for each of the 6 series races.
This offer my not be combined with any other discount offers.

Full Series Runnes and Blood Rock Lodging
Anyone registering for the 2020 Full Series that also signs up for the 100 Blood Rock Mile and 50 Mile gets the first opportunity to reserving a Cabin at the start. This year the Blood Rock start will be back at the Cabins. We have reserved all 10 cabins and they will become available, first come first serve, on May 1st. However, Full Series runners get first "shot" so to speak. I will send out an email around April 1st to all full series runners telling you that you may now reserve a cabin for Blood Rock. Those signed up for the BR 100 will have the first chance to reserve a room. The next day 50 miles can reserve a room. (The cabins are not available to 25 or 50K runners, sorry.)
