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
