The Afton Trail Run is one of the most challenging and beautiful trail races anywhere. The race was established in 1994 and is now one of the oldest, largest and most competitive trail races in the country and routinely draws runners from all 50 states and beyond. The race takes place entirely within the borders of Afton State Park. The race(s) consist of a hilly 25K loop (two loops for the 50K), winding through the state parks trail system.

We’ll work out your time based on past results, elevation and terrain.

What’s Included
A well marked course with plenty of aid and tons of friendly, experienced volunteers. All runners will receive a beefy wood finishers medal. A high quality unisex tri-blend t-shirt – past years shirts can be seen HERE. Each runner will receive a complimentary post race meal (burgers, veggie burgers, sides and fixings.)
Course Details
The race is held 100% off road, primarily on very runnable / not very technical single and double track trail. There are 7 long climbs per loop, rising from the river valley and down again with a good mix of rolling and flat terrain between the hills. Afton State Park lies on a glacial moraine, scribed with deep ravines running down to the St. Croix River.
Travel
Parking is limited! Please carpool if you are able. There is no parking allowed on the side of the road within Afton State Park. Parking must be in designated spaces only. Additionally, a block of spaces within the park will be saved for non-race-related park users. Parking within Afton State Park will be on a “first come, first served” basis. Once all of the parking spots allotted for the trail run within Afton State Park have been taken, racers will be directed by a flagger to enter Afton Alps Ski Area via Peller Ave South. You will follow signage to park in the Afton Alps Meadow Chalet parking lot which is at the very end of the road. After you park, additional signage will direct you to walk a minimum of 1/4 of a mile, but up to 1/2 of a mile up to Packet Pickup and the Start / Finish Area.
