2010 XTERRA Trail Run Series Preview
It was just five years ago when XTERRA initiated a stand-alone Trail Run Series to compliment its off-road triathlon ventures. The idea was to provide more opportunities for all of America to experience the “Live More” lifestyle and discover the pure beauty of nearby Mother Nature. Looking at the stats, you might declare mission accomplished. Since 2005 thousands of runners have gone off-road and the series has expanded dramatically, evolving from a little more than a dozen individual runs to a full-blown nationwide series with 53 races in 16 states stretching from Long Island, New York to Laguna Beach, California.
This year XTERRA has an unprecedented collection of trails to explore for runners of all abilities – from the 5k jogger just looking for something fun to stay active to the competitive half-marathon speedster with dreams of winning an XTERRA national or world championship title in their age group.
New in 2010 are series of three or more races in North Carolina, Texas, Ohio, Colorado, Alabama, Arizona and Long Island. XTERRA also welcome back the best – those events runners have learned to love in SoCal, NorCal, Georgia, and Philly. Find the complete schedule at www.xterratrailrun.com.
