Safety is first priority for the Park City Trail Series. Racing takes place 100% on dirt. Parts of the course include dirt roads, double track, single track, uphills, downhills, switch backs, and other challenges. Like any good trail run, you can expect some ruts, roots, rocks, grass, shade, mud, and other challenges. The longer courses cover a wider variety of terrain and challenge.
The Wasatch Mountains are blessed with mostly sunny weather and deep blue skies but things can change, sometimes quickly. We advise you to check the Park City, Utah weather forecast within 24 hours of each race.
If for any reason, runners need assistance in making it back to the start/finish area, volunteers placed along the course will be able to radio to the finish area for help.
As runners pick up their bib numbers at the start area, they will be “checked out.” Once a runner crosses the finish line and the bib tag is pulled, the runner will be “checked in” and will be accounted for. This will help to ensure all runners return safely back to the finish line.
