    Another trail race season is over, congratulations to everyone who honored the trails and chipmunks by running in the woods. This year, 1438 runners participated in the 20 races of the series, 262 ran at least two races, and 17 officially completed the series by running at least six races. Thanks to all of you runners, and thanks to the race directors, clubs, and volunteers who make the races of the series possible.

    Note should be made of Tim Van Orden, overall male winner with an average of 97% based on just six races, and at age 50! Top female runner Carolyn Wisnowski also won in just six races (thus no spares to offset a bad day) with 72%. Top Stoneheads were Ted Cowles with 944 points in 14 races, and Katya Divari with 510 points in 9 races. In the last six years, Ted has averaged 16 and Katya 10 races per season, which may inspire the more desk-bound of us a bit.

    Check out the Dion Snowshoe Series as the snowshoe season approaches, and for the 2019 Grand Tree series, check here after New Year's.

    Runners who completed the series with six or more races
    are invited to join an email list whose members will choose which races to ask to be in the 2019 series, and to make decisions about the series. Suggestions and comments from all runners and race directors are also welcome and will be considered. You know best what the series is and what it should be. Please email to take part.
