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 can’t host our 4th Trafford Trails 5 Mile race in June this year we decided to do something a bit different, a league, a socially distanced, trail loving, point scoring league. There will be prizes, kudos, sweat and smiles.
Most importantly we will share your routes and spread the word about where the best trails are.
You can still take part if you are doing all your running on a treadmill at the moment. You may already have found some favourite virtual trail runs or races to watch while doing your treadmill sessions. If not, there are many of these from all over the world freely available, for example, on YouTube. You can choose any that take your fancy for your 5k virtual trail.
During the month of June:
Run 5km on a trail (or treadmill) of your choosing.
Log your time.
Share a trail selfie, tell us about your route and get your friends involved to.
Help us raise some money for to support the mental health and wellbeing of manchesters youth.
There are prizes and kudo’s up for grabs, so if you want to compete you will need to get out more than once.
ONE Keep your distance and be socially responsible if you are running outside - 2 meters!
TWO All runs must be recorded between 1st June and 30th June.
THREE Your route must be 5km (give or take a few meters)

At the end of every day we will update the league table and provide an update on our facebook events page.
Please join in the conversation by telling us about your run and sharing some pictures.
