Mountain Goat Trail Series

The Mountain Goat Trail Series was created to 1) Connect local trail runners, 2) introduces runners to our world class single track, and 3) take responsibility for our local mountains by protecting them through service.

Composed of four courses located throughout Utah Valley, this series will challenge your fitness and improve your ability to navigate trails. Each race will commence promptly at 7:00am and have the same starting/ending locations.

Thanks to our SERIES SPONSORS:

 - Gnarly Nutrition

 - Altra Running

 - SRC UTAH

Provo has obtained 29 acres in/around Slate Canyon which will be set aside as public land. CUV is striving to not only protect these lands, but to highlight them as well. Thus, for our adventure run, we will be doing a loop to experience this beautiful acreage firsthand. Come celebrate the beauty of Utah with us! This will be the first of many dual RC/MGTS club runs. (If an 11 mile run is too much, CUV will be doing a guided hike that same morning which will follow the BST over to Slate.) More info can be found HERE
