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.

2016 Spring Series Schedule

The NMTC Spring Trail Series is comprised of six challenging trail runs in Duluth and Superior and one road race.  Come out and enjoy good running and camaraderie.  All runs are free.  There is a potluck and award ceremony after the last race.
Dogs no longer allowed to participate during NMTC runs.

Due to an increasing number incidents during our races, we are instituting a dog policy in 2016. We have always been a dog-friendly organization, and many people have run with their dogs at our races without incident. However, the trail series runs have grown quite a bit in recent years, and we are receiving increasing complaints of runners accidentally being tripped by dogs. We personally observed a few incidents last year and heard of several others. The City of Duluth also received a dog complaint during our Hartley race. Due to these issues, we will no longer be able to allow people to run with dogs during our races. Please contact Kris Glesener (218-390-4784) if you have any questions about this policy. Thank you for your understanding!
All runners must sign a waiver in order to participate in the NMTC Spring and Fall Trail Series. To speed up registration on race day, feel free to print one off and bring it with you on race day (available soon). We will also have forms available at the race for you to sign. You only need to sign the waiver once for the entire year.
