Next Generation and Night Moves Trail Run Recap
We were really excited as Trail Racing Over Texas to start the fall shorter trail series with a new double header. The Next Generation Trail Races is our first kids only (18 and under) trail run that had a 10k, 5k and 1 mile run. The race had custom bibs, tech shirts and amazing finishers medals as well. We had over 40 run the 1 miler, 25 run the 5k and a few run the 10k race. It was such a joy for us to watch them get a chance to experience a packet pickup, being chip times and getting to see what it was like to run a real trail race. The 5k race was another great mix of older youth that most of which had never run a trail run before and some as small as a 3 year old completed the 5k as well. The 10k race was 4 boys all from the same youth running team so they battled each other around the 2 loop course to the finish line. Overall it was an amazing day to share with the next generation of trail runners.
The Night moves race started at 8pm and played host to a 13.1, 10k and a 5k on the beautiful SFA State Park Trails. The 13.1 marathon was highly contested from the beginning with Team TROT runner Jeff Ball, Peter Muessig and Daniel Bucci knocking the top 3 spots. For the female Team TROT runner Tracie Akerhielm taking 1st, Alyson Dunn in 2nd and Sherry Scott in 3rd. The Night moves trail race included glow in the dark shirts, medals and a disco-themed finish line as well.
