North Shore Trail Series

The 2019 North Shore Trail Series, brought to you by New England Running Company & Trail and Salomon!

The North Shore Trail Series features six local trail races spread across seven months. We’ve worked hard to put together a series that showcases the best trail running the North Shore has to offer. Over the course of the series you will experience gentle carriage roads, rocky single track, ocean vistas, and private estates normally closed to the public. With races ranging from a 5K to a 50K, you will have experienced the full gamut of trail racing here on the North Shore of Massachusetts. The 2019 TRAIL SERIES WILL BE PARTICIPATION BASED.

Packet pick up will be held at New England Running Company & Trail the day before each race and runners will be able to enter a raffle for Salomon gear. Winners will be announced after each race.
