TRA Trail Running Association

The Trail Running Association issues race permits for trail running events, we have a full Race Permit for our event.

What is the Trail Running Association?

The TRA promotes and encourages participation in the athletic discipline of Trail Running throughout the United Kingdom and provides guidance and facilities for organisers of trail races.
The TRA is an associate member of UK Athletics (UKA). The TRA supports UKA in the management and regulation of trail running, and through this association with UKA, the TRA is able to issue permits to race organisers on behalf of UKA. 

The TRA awards grants to race organisers to encourage the promotion of trail running events.

Further details of how the TRA assists race organisers, and a link to the TRA guide to organising trail races,  can be found on the Organisers page.

The TRA also arranges UK Trail Running Championships. These events are held across three different distances, short, medium and ultra distance.  Please refer to the UK Trail Running Championship page for further details.

TRA Championship Grants are offered to the first male and female TRA members who qualify for a grant to finish in each of the three UK Trail Running Championships in each year.  Further information is available here.

The TRA also publishes a quarterly magazine called Trailrunner, organises the Thames Ring 250 and Ridgeway Challenge 86 trail races.
