About the event

PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of what this will mean for Trail Fest this fall, we have capped the race at the current level of entrants and opened the waitlist. This means that if you register, your credit card will NOT be charged, but your place in the event will be reserved. If the event does not take place, it's like a full refund. Once we know for sure that we will be able to hold the event, we will take people off the waitlist and you will receive an email asking you to accept your invitation to officially join the event, and at the time you accept your card be charged. Our goal is to avoid tying up your funds until we know for sure that we can proceed with Trail Fest. Thank you for your understanding!

Patapsco Trail Fest is for everyone! Join us for a weekend of celebrating Patapsco Valley State Park, it's incredible community and world class trails! The weekend features many different events including mountain biking, climbing, paddling, hiking, camping and trail runs!
Mountain Bike events are on Saturday, Sept. 19 - Trail Running Events are on Sunday, Sept. 20

*Please note!*
Due to the uncertainty of the global health crisis, all registrations are for the "waitlist". This does guarantee you a spot in your event, but allows you to NOT PAY until we are certain that the event will be given the green light. The goal is to minimize the financial burden on you, and to avoid costly and time consuming refunds later should we have to cancel due to the pandemic. Keep an eye out for emails and updates as we get closer to September. In the mean time, keep training, responsibly, and be safe!
