Carolina Trail Run Series on indefinite hold
A note from Marcus:
It is with a heavy heart that I must put the Series on indefinite hold and it definitely won't be happening for 2015. There are numerous reasons for this decision which I won't go into here. I created the series to promote healthy lifestyles and to entice more folks on the trails, off the pavement and into the woods where they can experience nature. Hopefully, over the past 5 years, it has accomplished that goal and I also hope the series was a wonderful experience for racers.
We have been so very lucky to have some wonderful race directors and organizers as part of the series. Our thanks go out to them, for without them, it wouldn't have been possible, namely Dirty Spokes Productions and Start2Finish Charlotte. The series started with three races that I directed myself, two of which (Sticks & Bones and XTERRA Whitewater) are now ran by these organizations that have since taken the races to another level. Their races will continue although they just won't be in a series format.
The website will remain for posterity and to allow you to see previous series standings for the time being. I hope that, in the future, I will be able to bring the series back, so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, I will continue to help behind the scenes at the races on the right, so I hope to see you there.
For those of you on my mailing list, I will still continue to shoot you an email from time to time to let you know what's going on in the trail community, racing and what-not. If you're not on the mailing list, you can sign up by clicking HERE. Sign up!
