Qdoba DINO Trail Run Series
GENERAL TRAIL RUN INFORMATION
WHAT IS A DINO TRAIL RUN??
The Qdoba DINO Trail Run Series takes you to some of the most scenic and challenging trails in central Indiana . Most of these trails are hiking and/or mountain bike trails. On a typical course, you'll face a variety of challenges; such as hills, dirt, rocks, roots, and occasionally mud and stream crossings. It isn't the kind of course to set a record time; but it is guaranteed to be a memorable experience - shared with a few hundred of our closest friends! Choose your distance: 5k (3.1 miles) or 15k (9.3 miles). (Distances may vary by +/- 5% due to the nature of the terrain and layout restrictions.)
Sign up for your nearest venue, or save on the entire series with a season pass. Difficulty levels vary - see course descriptions and ratings.
In addition to the fun of the event itself, many runners find trail running to be much gentler on the body than pounding the pavement. The events are family friendly; you'll even find that loyal participants become like family!
With your entry, you will receive: Spectacular trails, great competition, prompt results, quality awards, race commentary, post-race fresh Qdoba burrito bar (at selected events) or friut and snacks, chances to win random prizes and free goodies from our sponsors, bib number with instant results, water, sports drink, and more.
