You’re not Lost. You’re with us.

 

Trailhead Running’s motto couldn’t be more appropriate. As the organizers of the Women on the Trails Race Series, held in parks in and around Austin, Texas, Trailhead Running offers fun and challenging trail races for women who are new to trail running or for experienced runners who are looking for a different type of race venue.

 

Susan Farago, Trailhead Running’s Head Explorer, also brings a keen sense of environmental and social responsibility to the task of race directing as well, and offers the following environmental mission statement.

 

Trailhead Running incorporates environmental best practices into the Women on the Trails Race Series in three key ways:

  1. By showcasing Austin area trails in a non-invasive way;
  2. By producing trail running events using innovative and sustainable activities resulting in little to no waste;
  3. And by promoting and encouraging the spirit of Earth-friendly living through health, lifestyle, education, and community.

 

It is with great pleasure that we recognize the Women on the Trails Race Series as the first complete running series to achieve certification from the Council.
