The MRTC Winter Off-Road Race Series is a collection of four races run each year during the months of January and February. The Memphis weather, as crazy and unpredictable as it is, could deliver a race where it's 70 degrees yet be a cold icy rain or snow day for the next. And trail runners run through it all. 

There will be no onsite race day registration. You can register on race day but you will need to do that on your own device. 

Packet & Shirt Pick-up- 
Saturday, January 13, 2024 from 11am - 2pm
Fleet Feet, 4530 Poplar Ave., Suite 102

We WILL NOT have our laptops set up for onsite registration this year as we normally do. The online registration site will remain open, so please register online before leaving your house or you can register on your own personal device at the race. 

All participants of the full series will receive a long sleeve t-shirt. Single race day registrants will not get a shirt.

Results will be posted via email and posted online and the awards will be distributed once the full series is complete.

A points system will be used for both Overall and Age Group awards for the 4-race series. There are no awards for individual races. To be eligible for an award you must run at least 3 of the 4 races. Those runners who complete all 4 races will receive an extra point. Age groups are calculated off the age at the last race of the series.
The awards go 3-deep in Overall Open, 3-deep in Masters, 1-deep in Grand Masters, 1-deep in Senior Master and 3-deep in age groups. Fast runners can miss a race and still (possibly) qualify for an award, depending on the competition. Anyone found sending a substitute to run for them will be completely disqualified from the series. Ties will be broken based on the best performance in the longest race. All decisions made by MRTC will be final.

The awards ceremony for the 2024 Winter-Off Road Series will take place a week or two after the last race. The location and date will be announced later.
