Thanks for the info. The XTERRA race series started here in Utah I think last year -- but I haven't run any yet. It's nice to see more trail races starting up.

Are you by chance the director or helping with these races? Well, even if you're not ... you could still enter these races in the Trail Race database (http://www.backcountryrunner.com/trail_races/ ... click Add A Trail Race) and add more details and links.

I am the race director... last year we put on the "Thrill In The Hills" 1/2 marathon trail race at Fort Yargo (Race #2 in the series this year) and had a great turn out... had alot of inquiries for more trail races - hopefully the XTERRA Series will have a good following as well. I will get it posted in the trail race section as well.
