 2019 US Trail Running Conference

Love trail running? We do too!
October 9-12, 2019 - 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 seventh annual US Trail Running Conference, presented by Race Roster, is for you. The Conference is held in partnership with the American Trail Running Association, and brought to you by Active at Altitude. 

Wednesday afternoon, and all day Thursday and Friday of the 2019 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 for all the days, or you have options to include portions of the Conference to suit your schedule. You also have the option to include the trail runner sessions on Saturday October 12 as well. We will also be bringing you news of an exciting opportunity to enjoy a trail race here in Estes during Conference weekend.


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 app available. See the full schedule for Trail Race Directors here.

The final Saturday of the Conference, October 12, 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 an occasion that Trail Runners will not want to miss!
