The 2017 Folsom Trail Run Series (FTRS) is the most fun you'll have on a Thursday night! 

This is our 6th year!  Participants come back year after year and consider the series like a family reunion! You'll love the friendly, grass roots atmosphere, and the fun and challenging dirt trails. FTRS is a 6-week, point-based, 5k and 10k trail run series. We will count your best 5 out of 6 races in the series. This year the races are held at our two favorite courses: Willow Hill Reservoir and Beals Point State Park.

New to trail running? These races are perfect for you. Start with the 5k distance and give it a shot! Walkers welcome.

Only want to run one or two of the races? No problem! Pick the race that fits your schedule. We look forward to meeting you!
