Northern Trails Marathon and 10 Miler

About

Now in its fifth 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 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 again, race number 2 in the Trivium Mega Medal Series.  If you complete all the races in the series, you will receive a finishers medal as well!  All medals will fit together to make one Mega Medal!

    The ten miler will have a slight change in 2019 to ease some of the congestion.  On your return trip, athletes will do the upper loop on Bill Craft trail, it doesn’t change the distance, but it does reduce congestion in one of the areas where most of the two way traffic occurs.
