Northern Trails Marathon and 10 Miler

About

In its fourth year, The Northern Trails Marathon and 10 Mile will again be a great opportunity to see the best trails in the triad, win an awesome medal, and race one of our favorite events! It’s not often you have the opportunity to put on an event in the same place you run every day! This event will again be a part of the Trivium Running Series and The Trivium Club Cup Challenge. The race starts on the trails behind Northern Guilford High School before jumping onto the newest trail in the Triad, the Bill Craft Trail. Run along next to gorgeous dogwood trees and beaver ponds. The marathoners will continue onto trails along Lake Townsend and Lake Brandt before making their way back to NGHS! Great finishers medals and prizes await our finishers.

This race is race number 2 in the Trivium Medal Series.  If you complete all 5 races you will receive a finishers medal as well!  All six medals will fit together to make one giant Trivium Medal! (Shown are the 2017 medal series)
