The Duluth Winter Trailrunning Series (DWTS) is a series of fun, challenging and unique trail running races taking place primarily on the wonderful snowpacked fat bike multi-use trails in Duluth, MN.  The trail running series will take advantage of the extensive system of packed multi-use fat bike trails that snake throughout the City of Duluth and provide incredible and unique opportunities for trail runners to explore the amazing topography and views of Duluth in the winter.  Locals find the packed fat bike trails to be even more fun to run in the winter than when they're snow free! 

We've selected a few of the most fun, scenic and popular routes for winter trail runners.  This years winter trail running series will start at Chester Park, move to Lester Park where we'll revive a winter classic on an all new course, move to a local ski slope for a Wild Winter Wipeout of grinding ups and bombing fast descents and then finish with a 10K on a quintessential route in the heart of Duluth at Hartley Park.  

Join us this winter for this fun series of races on the amazing winter trails of Duluth!  Can you finish all 5 races in the Series and become a Winter Trail Series Survivor?  Special award to runners who finish all four races.

Some races will include snowshoe and "no shoe" (trail running) divisions.

This new winter trail series will open up a whole new window of winter fun for runners not used to running on smooth, snowpacked trails.  Join us this winter and become a Winter Trail Series Survivor!  Be sure to dress warm!
