Racing isn’t the be all and end all in Trail Running – we’re usually much more interested in stopping part way through a route for coffee and cake. Some events, though, capture our imagination to the point where we just have to be there to experience it for ourselves. These reports will give a flavour of the most exciting races out there, submitted by both TR contributors and readers alike - use them for inspiration. And if you’ve been lucky enough to attend an event worthy of a write-up, just send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your writing and photography are up to scratch, we’ll upload it right here.
