Welcome to the Northern Minnesota Track Club (NMTC) page. This area of our site contains information about the NMTC Trail Series. Below this section, you will find the schedules for both the Spring and Fall Series. On the lefthand side you will find historical results going back to the early 80s. That data pertains to the Fall Series only. We have not yet uncovered historical data for the Spring Series. A big thank you to Jarrow Wahman for a) saving the fall information all these years, and b) volunteering to type all the data into electronic form.

2014 Spring Series Schedule

The NMTC Spring Trail Series is comprised of 6 challenging trail runs in Duluth and Superior and one road race.  Come out and enjoy good running and camraderie.  All runs are free.  There is a potluck and award ceremony after the last race.

2014 Waiver - Please print, sign, and bring with you on race day.

Changes for 2014
1. Due to an increase in the number of ticks and lyme disease in the past few years,  we are moving the Bull Run to the fall series.  In its place, we are moving the Magney-Snively Run back to the spring series.  The Magney-Snively Run has been renamed the Ely's Peak Run.

2. Due to the wetness of the Piedmont trails in the spring, we are not holding the Goat Run this year.  We will hold a new race called the Woodland Run in its place.  The Woodland Run will start in the old gravel pit off Jean Duluth Road and utilize local trails and the Superior Hiking Trail.

3. We now have an open week the second-to-last week of the series.  Should we encounter bad weather or poor trail conditions in any of the first 6 races, we will move that race to the bye week.

All runners must sign the appropriate waiver form (adult or youth) in order to participate in the NMTC Spring Trail Series. To speed up registration on race day, please print one off and bring it with you on race day (available here). We will also have forms available at the race for you to sign. You only need to sign the waiver once for the entire spring series. You will need to sign a different waiver for the fall series.
