this list is appreciated! I am glad to see a couple of shorter trail runs on here that I did not know about. Hopefully I can continue to get my friends to sign up with me so that I can stay motivated and move on up to the longer ones!

Don't forget ING marathon/half-marathon Mar 30, 2008.

Tom - Thank you for your links. I actually used the Trailrunner calendar as one of my sources (I pulled from about six or seven different ones).

lionelbourn - thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately the ING race is not on trails, so I did not include it on this list. It is, however, a fine race and on my short list for the spring season.

They haven't posted the date yet, but the Mountain Ranger Run is a blast and quite challenging. It has been held in May in conjunction with the Camp Merrill open house. You run on unpaved trails and forest service roads. There is a 5k, 15k, and Duathlon (run 5k, bike 34k, run 2 miles) to choose from.

We did the duathlon a few years back and had a blast. They have demonstrations that include artillery, helicopters, etc going on at the base while you're out running. The sound of exploding shells helps you pick up the pace a little bit (even thought they told me I was a LONG way from danger).
