Wild Thangs Trail Series

This week marks the kick off of our second year of the Wild Thangs Trail Series. If you didn’t get to participate last year, we want to let you know a little more about our summer series. There are 4 races total in the series with both short and long race distances. Starting in June and finishing in August, these 4 races are designed to be competitive, help runners increase their race distances through the hot summer months, and most of all be a ton of fun. Enjoy the lovely views of Monte Sano featuring beautiful bluffs, gorgeous climbs and exciting creek crossings. 

If you are new to trails this is a great way to jump in. Even if you are an experienced trail runner, this series provides an opportunity to work on some shorter distances. Each race features a shorter and longer distance so that runners have the opportunity to compete at whatever distance they prefer. The Big Foot 5k/10k is sold out but the remainder of the races still have openings!

Take a look at each of the Wild Thangs Races.

I've been running since April of 2011, and I got into it mostly for weight loss purposes.  I quickly realized that I loved running and became interested in getting better and setting goals.  Each season brings different challenges, and I like being coached by people that coach me based on my personal goals, rather than a generic website that makes us all one type of runner.  RunningLane is perfect for runners seeking specific training tailored to their own personal goals.
