The Tuesday night, trail running series features nine races of alternating 3K, 5K, and 8K lengths at Waterville's Quarry Road Recreation Area. Each week there will be prizes for the top male and female finishers, as well as raffle prizes for all participating runners, thanks to local sponsors.
A free Kids Fun Run of approximately 1K will be held for children 12 and under at 5:30 p.m. before each race.
