Park City Trail Series 5k (3.1 miles) June 10, 2017.
For this race, the grass is tall and green and there is snow clinging to the top of Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort which can be seen in the distance. The course is comprised mainly of grated dirt road with little elevation gain. This is a great first trail race! Average running time is about .5 to 1 hour.

Park City Trail Series 10k (6.2 miles) July 8, 2017
The weather is warmer and the grass is getting crispy but the mountains are stunning green in the distance. While the Salt Lake Valley is sweltering, Park City at this time of year is in its prime with warm days and warm evenings. The course for the 10k includes some single track and a definite hill or two. Average running time is about 1 to 1.75 hours.

Park City Trail Series 15k (9.3 miles) August 12, 2017
This is the season when occasional afternoon rains keep the dust down on the trails nice and the mornings are becoming crisp and cool. At the top of the switchbacks, runners may have vistas of red and orange polka dotted ski slopes as the first aspens pop into their fall fashions. Average running time is 1.5 to 2.5 hours.

Park City Trail Series Half Marathon (13.1 miles) September 16, 2017
The Park City Trail Series Half Marathon is a true accomplishment. The course includes all of the terrain from the earlier races plus some extra distance. The trees on course have turned colors and whole area is bathed in hues of autumn. The air is cold at the start as mist settles in the valleys.  Balloons from the Park City balloon festival rise with the sun and float overhead. From the tops of the climbs one can see the ski resorts in the distance which seem to be yearn for snow. If you like to run half marathons, this one should be on your list!
