Happy Trails 5k GPS Series

We wanted to provide an amazing way for runners to experience these great trails so we came up with this race series. A convenient and affordable way to explore these trails and push yourself all without getting lost! By using segments our courses will ensure all runners are timed on the same section of course allowing for a fun and competitive race series!

These courses cover beautiful areas and will leave you wanting even more. We hope this series will help motivate those who may be reluctant or don't know how to start exploring these trails. With our leaderboards and finisher results this series will have you competing against yourself and others while you navigate the course.
Due to this area being so popular all events have been banned from these trails. Because of this we have taken this unique approach using a gps program to run and explore these trails together. We hope you will read below to see how it works and give this series a try, you won't regret it!
