What we're about

If you live in or are visiting south-central Wisconsin and love to run out in nature, this is your group. Madison Trail Runners is open to anyone interested in running, from beginners to elite runners at all distances. Our group features a variety of group running options, including shorter, fun runs to more difficult training runs such as long runs, tempo runs, hill repeats, intervals, etc. This is a place to get involved in trail runs and races, leave race reports, volunteer for trail maintenance projects, attend running-related talks, social events, and, some day, hold our own trail race events.
