Welcome!

The Upper Midwest Trail Runners is an organization for anyone who likes to run off road – whether dirt, grass, rocks, mud, snow — really, any trail that isn’t paved.

Our organization promotes trail stewardship, a volunteer ethic, trail running ambassadorship and recreational and competitive trail running pursuits.
