Inaugural National Trail Running Day a Success!

posted by Chris Barber


I hope you didn’t miss the Inaugural National Trail Running Day this past Saturday.  It was a great success with runners taking to the trails all over the Nation.  Over 3000 trail runners participated in official events this year by running in group runs, trail races, and doing trail clean-ups.  Thank you to everyone who participated and helped make it a success!  Don’t worry if you missed it, there’s always next year.  Put it on your long-range calendar now so you don’t forget, August 21st, 2010, is set for the 2nd Annual National Trail Running Day.  You only have 363 days left to plan your celebration.  If you have any pictures from National Trail Running Day that you would like to share, please feel free to add them to the National Trail Running Day Facebook group.

Again, thank you to all who participated in the Inaugural event.  Now you have something to tell your grandchildren about.  How way back in 2009 you participated in the very first National Trail Running Day!

    National trail running day was an awesome idea. My wife and I and 3 other couples took full advanatage so we can brag that we ran in the inaugural event. When I reach 50 I can say I ran this race 30 years straight.
