Grand Tree Trail Race Series

What is the Grand Tree?

The Grand Tree is a New England trail race series that provides competition, community, and a measure of performance relative to one's peers or oneself over time. For beginning trail racers, it's an entry to races farther from home or of differing distance or character. For new trail races, inclusion in the series can help a race become established.

How the Series Works
(for 2022, see Covid-19 note below)

Run as few or as many races as you like, at least six to officially complete the series. Each race earns you points proportional to your pace as a percentage of the winner's pace, with the winner getting 100 points, and, for example, a hypothetical runner at 75% of the winner's pace getting 75 points. Your best six races determine your final standing for the series. In addition, for the "Stonehead" competition, the points for all the races you run are summed. For dual-distance races, the longer race is the Grand Tree Race except for Chesterfield, Pisgah, and Peaked as noted.

The Covid-19 situation...

This year the Grand Tree will again be counting race scores towards an abbreviated Best 4 2022 race season, starting with Bimbler's Bash and ending with Upton Half Marathon.

Races are posted with 2022 dates when known, with some races rescheduled from their canonical dates. The "Last revised" date below does not mean that each race's information has been updated.

Good luck this year, everyone! Run happy and enjoy the trails.
