Inspire. Explore. Run.

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

The Series

The Wood Buffalo Trail Running Series has 3 races each year throughout May to October.

Most events in the series will offer two different race distances:

  • SPORT (one loop from 6-8km)

  • ENDURO (two loops from 12 - 16km).

The distances will be different dependent on the race's location.


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 from 2013.
