7 races in 7 Months. Start with a 3 mile trail race in April, end with a 50K in November. You can do it!
In an effort to promote trail running and introduce new runners to the trails, Mountain High Outfitters and Southeastern Trail Runs have created a series of races beginning in April of 2013. 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 Tranquility Lake 50K in November. Those that wish to go farther can continue to train 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 trail races. Each race will offer opportunities to run farther than the previous race with more difficult terrain and more elevation gain. We will help runners design a training schedule that will make it easier to reach their goals, whether it is to go out and enjoy an occasional 50K or run the Leadville 100. Or maybe even Hardrock. There are actually two points championships to compete for. The "Sprint Championship", the short race championship and the Long Race Championship. Participants will earn points for each event completed based on their time and distance run. Points leaders at the end of the series will receive special awards as Southeastern Trail Series Points Champions. Runners entering all events will also receive special awards. All races will take place in the Birmingham area.
