A Look Back at the 2017 Southeastern Trail Series
In 2017, Southeastern Trail Runs put on a total of 9 Races. Six events were part of the Southeastern Trail Series. The series is designed as a training program for those new to trail running. The first series race is a relatively easy 3 and 6 mile race. Each of the next 5 races are longer and harder than the previous race, ending with the very demanding, Blood Rock 25K & 50K race in December. Along with the 6 trail series races, Southeastern Trail Runs also has the Lake Martin 100, The Endless Mile timed event, the BOO Run for Down syndrome Alabama and Blood Rock 100 and 50 Mile Endurance Run which runs concurrently with the BR 25 & 50K. Hot food and cold drinks are served at the end of every STR Race. Crew and family members are welcome to the join their runners and enjoy the food.
The Southeastern Trail Series has continued to grow each year with about 1,600 different runners participating in at least one race in 2017. We have about a 40% to 50% turnover of runners from one year to the next. That is, every year we have a whole new “crop” of trail runners join the trail running community in Birmingham. If you live near Birmingham, consider running with us in a few races in 2018 or enter the entire series and save 20%. Find out what trial running is all about and how much fun you have been missing.
