In it's 14th year the RNUTS series gives you the chance to run trail races ranging from 5k to marathon from January 8th to May 29th.  Start your year out right, with great, well run, challenging races with a great group of people.

2022 Rules, Eligibility and Fees

Each series entrant must register and complete 5 of the 7 RNUTS events to qualify for the series awards

This series has been created to showcase the trails in and around the Roanoke Valley and help turn you into a Mountain Junkie.   We need more of you to help us feel normal.

What we have for you is a one of a kind experience.  Each of these races are held in beautiful locations, contain different types of trail, possess different levels of challenge, and have been picked to push your limits and provide you with a great trail running experience.  Here is what you will get; well maintained well marked courses, quick results, unique overall awards, and results posted to the web the same day as the race, and at most races we'll have pictures taken and posted for you free of charge. 

This series has been set up so that you can comfortably increase your race mileage over the course of the year and/or from year to year.  I hope that many people will use this series as a springboard for taking on ultra events (events longer than 26.2 miles.  If interested check out a couple of my favorites www.eco-xsports.com & www.extremeultrarunning.com). 

Start the New Year off right with the Frozen Toe 10k. This race is on a favorite trail of ours; the Chestnut Ridge Loop Trail, in Roanoke.  Next our newest race on the calendar, the Forever 5 & 10 Milers.  Then we head into the core races we've had on the schedule since the beginning; a 5k or 10k at the Explore Park, runners can then increase their mileage to run a 5 or 10 miler at Montvale Park, then head onto the toughest 10k in Roanoke. A mountainous up and down course on Mill Mountain (This race has the distinction of being voted as the favorite and most hated Mountain Junkies race by our series participants), then onto a 10k or Half Marathon at at Falling Creek Park in Bedford, and finally finish with the anchor event at Carvins Cove, a 25k or Marathon course that will have you grinning and/or cursing along the way.

You wont regret the challenge weve created for you.

Each event in the series is a stand alone event.  You don't have to enter the series to enter our races.  The series was created as an added challenge and setup to help push you and keep you focused throughout the year.
