Unfortunately due to CV-19 it will not be possible to host the event in June as we had planned,
instead we are going to postpone the race in the hope that we will be able to find another date later in the year.
Due to sunset getting much earlier from early September the latest we could host an evening event would be towards the end of August.
At the moment we think that is unlikely so we are instead hoping for a winter weekend event. We will keep you posted if anything changes.
For now, entries are closed until we have a new date.
Trafford Trails was established to raise the profile of Manchester’s beautiful trails, there’s 100’s of them and most of them are completely unknown to the majority of runners.
As we have had to postpone our 4th Trafford Trails 5 Mile race we decided to do something a bit different, a free to enter, socially distanced, trail loving, point scoring league.
This is open to people running outside on the trails as well as those currently doing all their trail running virtually ie indoors.
There will be prizes, kudos, sweat and smiles.
All you have to do is find a trail, go for a run, send us your result and watch the points add up.
What is trail running?
Trail running is a sport-activity which combines running and sometimes hiking on trails. Trail running normally takes place on good paths, or tracks which are relatively easy to follow, and does not necessarily involve significant amounts of ascent, or need for navigating skills.
A trail is basically “an unpaved surface” so if you have navigated away from roads and houses you are probably on a trail.
The number of organized trail races grew 1,000% from 2008 to 2018, from 160 to more than 1,800 globally. Runners often cite less impact stress compared to road running, as well as the landscape and non-urban environment, as primary reasons for preferring trail running.
