Our mission is to provide a fun environment for all levels of runners and walkers with short distance events to help ease new runners into trail running and racing and give seasoned runners an opportunity to get their speed on!
The 2016 Folsom Trails Sprint Series (FTSS) is the most fun you'll have on a Thursday night! The FTSS a 10-week, points-based series designed to encourage friendly competition and the enjoyment of trail running, racing and walking. There are three, fun and challenging courses: Willow Hill Reservoir/Cross Country Course, Beals Point and Negro Bar State Parks trails. Each course distance is 5k (or pretty darn close). Enjoy the friendly, grass roots atmosphere and the fun, well-groomed, beautiful tree lined dirt trails.
Runners have the
option of running any number of races you choose (1-10).
Are you ready to get dirty and have a rockin’ good time?

Teams and Clubs

indicate your team or club affiliation. Teams and clubs will
have the opportunity to compete by combining their individual
points for team points.
Making our events a success takes a lot of help from volunteers. We have positions to be filled and are looking for volunteers to help on race day. As a volunteer, you may earn race credit for yourself, a significant other or family member.
