Winter Trail Fest Half Marathon and 5 Miler Westside


Please Click here to see our procedure for event modifications for this event

We at Trivium Racing are working hard to make sure we have a great event for you in March.  While planning continues, athletes should be aware that the potential for cancellation or postponement still exists due to Covid-19. There are also certain modifications that may be made to mitigate the health risks posed by large group events if the event does go forward.  Trust that we will do everything we can to have a safe and fun event as promised.  Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy (found both on the registration page and under our rules page) prior to signing up.  We hope to see everyone on March 6th, 2021!

Some call it Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Half, some call it The Winter Trail Fest Half some just think What The F…..  This race is not for the weak of heart or the cold intolerant. We will be down at Yankee Springs for a winter trail half marathon race and we will be hoping for some of the nastiest conditions possible!  We really want you to earn your WTF Medal and WTF custom hoodie!  The afternoon start will give you a chance to relax and enjoy the morning before tackling 13.1 brutal miles in the afternoon!

Not quite ready for a Half Marathon but still want to race?  There is also a 5 mile option!!

As with all of our races, Trivium is going to give you the best race experience possible with easy to follow trail markings, lots of aid on the course, live results, and unique prizes!
