2020 Ambassadors

We’ll be making a call out to for ambassadors (x1 male, x1 female) a week after entries open (TBC) for the 2020 Trail Running Series presented by MINI Countrymen.

We’ll be looking for 100-150 words on what the trail running series means to you your and fondest memory the past 10 years in celebration of the 10 year anniversary for the event.

We’ll be making a secondary callout for a youth ambassador after this so start brainstorming and show us your finest piece of prose to be awarded free entry to the Trail Running Series and the official moniker of, “2020 Trail Running Series Ambassador.”

2019 Information on Ambassadors below… 2020 announced soon!

We made the call out out in 2019 via the TRS Facebook page and decided on three ambassadors (1 Guy and 2 Girls) after much deliberation. We’d like to thank all those TRS participants who put their application forward directly on Facebook and our Inbox.

Some words of inspiration from 2018 ambassadors

“Setting increasingly difficult goals, putting in the work, achieving and celebrating them have given me so much focus and a motivation to look after myself. Mentally, the journey you go on over a trail race has built a lot of strength for me and has been a good lesson in perseverance and adaptation.” Mark Barger, Trail Running Series 2018 ambassador.

“I love the trails because of the freedom, the fresh air the scenery, but I love that I can keep my mind active on the technical ground and switchbacks, I love that I can talk myself through a tough climb and feel a huge achievement when I hit the top. You just don’t get any of that when your pounding the pavement, your mind wanders to places where it only goes when your board and your body hurts from the impact.”Renee Drysdale, Trail Running Series 2018 ambassador
