Trenton Summer Festival 5K, 8K and 1 Mile Fun Run


The second event in the Trivium Mega Medal Series and the sixth event in the Trivium Southeast Michigan Points Championship will be held in conjunction with the Trenton Summer Festival.  This location holds a special place in my (Richard’s) heart.  Trenton was the first location that I ran a true road race!  This race will have a little bit of everything, a fast USATF certified course, amazing prizes, craft beer, and a summer festival to follow!  You will not want to miss this early summer road race!
