Tents & Trails – The Midwest Trail Running Festival

Tents & Trails—The Midwest Trail Running Festival

5th Annual Tents & Trails — The Midwest Trail Running Festival
Friday, September 4th – Sunday, September 6th 2020, Camp Manatoc

Note: We remain confident that the event will go on as planned. If the race cannot be held, you will be provided the option to defer to next year’s event or another WRR event of similar distance/value.

A weekend extravaganza of trail races, a duathlon, camping, raffles, food, a beer garden, and more! The 5th Annual Tents & Trails will be held on Labor Day weekend and features something for everyone! Running events include five races — a FREE 2 mile kids’ trail race, a 10K, a Duathlon, Half Marathon, and a Marathon — all on the beautiful, technical trails of Camp Manatoc. These trails are forbidden to the public the rest of the year. Don’t miss your only chance to explore them. Bring a friend and make a few new ones!

Please note: Dogs are not permitted at Camp Manatoc, and alcohol is allowed in beer garden area only.

2020 Schedule of Events coming soon — for the latest information, follow our Tents & Trails Facebook event page.
