Been running about 9 months. I love the trails. I haven't run a trail race yet, but plan to. My long runs are 10 to 12 miles now. I hope to particapate (not race), in a 50k next year.

Welcome! What types of trails do you run on? Just curious. Do you have a trail race in mind?

I live in Kings Mountain, NC, which is about 30 miles west of Charlotte. Crowders Mountain state park is about 10 minutes from my house, and is where I run most of the time. There's several miles of trails, and even a trail that links Crowders Mountain State park with Kings Mountain National Military Park.

The Runners from Hell and Team Slug put on a 50k each year at Crowders, usually in April. Id also like to run the Umstead Marathon held at the William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh, NC.
