Trail Transformation helps runners stay injury free, while training to their maximum potential, so they can reach their running goals! If you want to improve your trail running game, Trail Transformation can help you get there. 




As you can imagine, 2021 may look a little different. We are still waiting on dates for a number of races, and it's likely that many events will be postponed or cancelled. But we'd still like to run!

Rules You must be a UMTR member to participate in the series.

  • Entrance in the UMTR Trail Run series does not guarantee entry into any individual race. Entrants are responsible for their own race registration and all race entry fees.
  • Races started prior to the official start time will not be counted in the scoring. This ensures that all runners have the same amount of time and conditions in which to complete an event.
  • There is no retroactive scoring; only races completed after entering the series will be scored.
  • There will be overall male and female winners, plus age groups for each: Open (under 40 years), Masters (40-49) and Grandmasters (50+). A runner’s age group is determined by their age as of April 1, just prior to the start of the series.
  • To avoid duplication of awards, overall winners will not be eligible for age group awards.
  • A runner must complete at least three races to win overall or in their age class.
  • Only official finishes, as determined by the event’s Race Director, will earn points in the series standings.
  • Scoring will be as follows:
    • Participants may run as many of the series races as they wish.
    • A runner must complete the distance for which he / she originally registered and started to earn points in the series standings. Longer distances do not count for the Trail Series.
    • Only official finishes, as determined by the event’s Race Director, will earn points in the series standings.
    • 50 points are awarded for first place among participating series runners, 40 for second, 30 for third, 20 for fourth, 10 for all other finishers.
    • Volunteer Bonus: Volunteering at any race in any UMTR series will be awarded 15 bonus points, applied to both overall and age class standings in all series in which the entrant is participating. Up to 3 bonuses will be applied per entrant per UMTR series season. It is the responsibility of the entrant to notify the series director, of ALL the series in which they participate, of their volunteering within three weeks or by the next race, whichever is later.
    • Point system will be applied per age group, and for the overall championship.
