We are a bodacious trail squad for you + every runner you know. Offering weekly Squad Runs + events orbiting out of Woodsville, New Hampshire, we explore off-pavement terrain + tasty trail gnar.
Get rad with us on a Squad Run. All paces welcome! Rain, snow or shine + no special equipment needed beyond your beautiful bad self.
Maximize Your Fun --
Arrive on time, dress for the elements, rock up in some comfy running shoes + bring some water. Add or shave off distance. When days shorten, headlamps will be key.
*Last minute updates/ cancellations to weekly Squad Runs will be posted on our Twitter + Instagram.
RACES + EVENTS
Save the 2022 dates-- we've got a couple of big squad runs + a fat ass race lined up!Squad Runs are fiercely noncompetitive adventures to run long miles in the woods together. Come for all or some of the route; no sign-up necessary, just meet at the selected Start (click on links for details).
The Bloobs 50K fat ass + Full Moon On Moosilauke event have sign-ups because our yard is only so big for fun lovin' campers + the chariots they ride in on:
|12/23||5K Jingle Your Jangles 🎅||6:30p||Woodsville|
The squad's stoke is high for the upcoming Shorts Season!
When are Squad Runs?
Weekly! Click here for details.
What if I think I'm too slow?
All paces welcome! Squad Runs are a no-drop good time.
What if I'm a fast kid?
Get after that breakaway! Just let the Squad Run leader know you plan to kick up the dust when the run gets underway. Also, please consider leading a weekly fast-paced Squad Run to help grow our gnarly community.
Are Squad Runs races?
Nope! They are a fun way to mix up your training/fitness routine + build a community of gnar lovin' runners.
Who you calling a Fat Ass?!
A Fat Ass is an ultrarunning term for a free, loosely organized "non-race" that focuses on trail community + camaraderie over competition. No awards, no t-shirt-- just miles, smiles + a plea for a small donation toward the rented port-a-pooper.
Who's running this show?
Although the Gnarly Trail Runners is Brie's brainchild, the squad belongs to every rad participant.😎💜
What if I'm a total asshole with a bad attitude?
People can change but if you're dedicated to the jerkface cause, you'll be bounced from any + all Gnarly Trail Runners activities.
This sounds great but I'm scared, shy + intimidated...
We hear you but don't be! Squad Runs are beginner friendly (unless posted otherwise as more runs are offered). If you can jog a 5k at any pace, you can join Squad Runs led by Brie because when the going gets tough, she walks + will happily walk with you.
I'm not local; how can I support GTR?
First of all, you rule + thank you! Join the Gnarly Trail Runners club on Strava, stay tuned for future races + shop the GTR swaggin' wagon.
Can I lead Squad Runs in my neck of the woods?
Hellz to the yes! Contact us about your route, preferred pace + committed weekly time slot so we can add it to the weekly Squad Run list.
THE BIG DISCLAIMER TALK
We know this grown-up stuff is unfun but the sweet news is this is a one-time read + no pop quiz later. 👍
Gnarly Trail Runners exists purely to offer an opportunity for like-minded runners to exercise together in a group. Every person attending a run must take full + complete responsibility for their own actions. Know your limits. We recommend that you can run at least 5k/3mi comfortably at any pace.
The GTR squad is all about inclusion + does not discriminate against any attendees.
GTR squad is operated + managed by volunteers in their free time; these volunteers cannot accept any responsibility for any events that occur during GTR runs + races. These volunteers may or may not have taken any training/coaching.
All attendees should consider the GTR squad as an informal gathering of people who will run together in a loosely structured format. It’s your decision alone whether or not you are fit + able to run. If you are unsure consult your physician.
The volunteer leading the run reserves the right to refuse to let you run with the group. If you have any medical conditions that could affect you, it’s your responsibility to make the squad aware of these. If you stop mid-session please notifying the run volunteer leader. The minimum age that we can accept is 18 unless accompanied by an adult.
Appropriate clothing + footwear for running must be worn. You should dress appropriately for the weather + for the lighting conditions. During darker runs we recommend that you bring a hand held light or wear a headlamp together with reflective clothing.
Each runner must accept full + complete liability for their actions.
Gnarly Trail Runners may use your photographs to share on social media. If you do not wish for this to happen please let the run volunteer know.
We'd love to hear from you! Reach out with any questions/ feedback you may have on our social media or use the email form below to send us a message.Get rad, stay rad! 🤘😎
