Winter, trails, darkness, and all the weather.
One last hurrah before the end of the year. Runners, get ready for a fun and festive holiday treat along the trails of Squaxin Park.
One of mountain running and trail running’s biggest events will take place in Aragón, Spain, in September 2025, bringing together 1,700 athletes from 70 countries.
With the 2023 edition kicking off this weekend in Innsbruck, Austria, sights are already set for the next iteration, two years from now in Spain. I’m glad to see this event gaining traction. It’s a great counterbalance to the Golden Trail Series and UTMB events, even though the World Championships are the classic “watch the pros run and don’t get to participate” events we’re familiar with from every other sport. And what makes trail running so great in many ways is the participatory nature of the everyday runner toeing the line with the pros at the biggest events.
