Share Article

Trail & Ski outdoor shop is a cosponsor of the Tallahassee Gulf Winds Track Club Summer Trail Series, a four-race series on scenic Tallahassee running trails.

Trail & Ski, along with Salomon Footwear, are cosponsoring the Tallahassee Gulf Winds Track Club Summer Trail Series. The four-race series will take place on the most scenic and challenging trails in Tallahassee. Each road race will start in an open area before leading onto a trail. The courses offer challenges to runners like rolling terrain, single track trails, multi-use trails and technical sections with rocks, roots, and tight, twisting turns.

The first race on June 22 is at Tom Brown Park on the Cadillac Trail for a distance of 5.5 miles. The second race is on July 13 at the Swamp Forest Trail in Phipps Park and is 4.5 miles long. The third race is again at Tom Brown Park on July 27 for a distance of 3.5 miles on the Magnolia Trail. The last race is at Forestmeadows on the Redbug Trail on Aug. 3 for 4.5 miles.

Salomon Footwear will award the male and female winners of the Series a pair of XR Mission trail running shoes valued at $110. The XR Mission shoe features a stretchy, highly breathable mesh upper that has Salomon's unique Quicklace system. Its Sensifit system delivers a precise and secure fit and the Sensiflex and semi-rigid OS Tendon bars encourage efficient and powerful foot roll. Finally, the multi-density midsole materials give a firm but cushioned ride, while the Contragrip outsole increases traction on wet or muddy trails. The winners will also receive a pair of Native all-sports sunglasses.
