There are five trail races in this new series from Go Beyond, all ranging in distance between 6 and 8 miles, and all within an hour of Portland. All runners will have two months to complete these five races, from October 15th thru December 15th.

You can run them in any order and at any time.
If you’re familiar with the Go Beyond Trail Series, the way race results are calculated should be familiar. If you do at least 3 of the 5 races, you’re in the series! You will submit your results via Strava after you’ve completed each race and your best 3 out of 5 races will be averaged for your results. There will be awards for the overall male and female, as well as results for each individual race. All participants of at least 3 races will get pint glasses and there will also be raffle prizes awarded at the LIVE virtual award celebration on Friday, December 17th at 7:00PM.
