The Wood Buffalo Trail Running Series is a running race series that aims to encourage off-road running in the community of Wood Buffalo.  Race participants can be anyone from beginners to seasoned veterans.  The goal is to compete and challenge yourself in a fun and supportive atmosphere and to get outside and explore our beautiful region.




After a really fun out-of-town trail racing season in the summer of 2012 a bunch of passionate local Fort McMurray runners wanted to bring their own trail racing series to their hometown and region.  From this desire to get out and explore their own backyard they decided to create the Wood Buffalo Trail Running Series.

Series Information
