Webinar series

The US Trail Running Conference is excited to announce a new webinar series starting in January 2021.

These webinars have been specifically created for race directors, provided by the US Trail running Conference (USTRC) working in partnership with the American Trail Running Association (ATRA),and Trail Runner Magazine  

Each webinar covers a specific subject that our survey has revealed are critical to help Race Directors produce viable, successful, sustainable, trail races. Each webinar will provide a toolkit document after the webinar for Race Directors that includes key deliverables that can be implemented to effect positive outcomes.

Each of the webinar series will be available as a recording after the live session – each registrant will receive a link for the recording for each of the webinars that they have registered for.
