2017 US Trail Running Conference

Love trail running? We do too!
October 11-14, 2017 - Estes Park, CO

Whether you’re an experienced trail runner, an ultra-marathoner, a trail newbie, a Trail Race Director, or somewhere in between, the fifth annual US Trail Running Conference, brought to you by Active at Altitude, is for you. The Conference is held in partnership with the American Trail Running Association.

The first two and a half days of the 2017 Conference is focused on Trail Race Directors, including speaker panels, round table sessions, and breakout sessions to share information and brainstorm ideas that our surveys have found are critical for all Trail Race RD’s. The event also includes a top level expo featuring vendors that produce products or services applicable to Trail race Directors. You can choose to attend the whole two and a half days, or you have options to include attending for the two full days, or just pick one day. You will also have the option to extend your stay at the Conference, taking in the full Saturday dedicated to Trail Runner at a discounted rate!
The rates for Trail Race Directors include access to all workshops and sessions, networking events where featured, access to expo, lunch on the full days, and refreshments at break times. There will also be a Conference program available. See the full schedule for Trail Race Directors here.

The final full day of the Conference is dedicated to Trail Runners. With speaker panels, guest elite athletes, interactive workshops, demo products, full and varied expo with trail related products, this is a day that Trail Runners will not want to miss!
