In addition to our digital magazine’s calendar (which shows events 5-6 months ahead), we curate a popular online event calendar, which shows all local trail running races one month ahead of race date.

How to get listed: It’s easy. Just send us an email at least two months before your event with the information in the format below. Or book a paid listing for longer exposure (see below).

What do we need from you? For both our digital magazine, and our online calendar, simply copy-paste the text below and use it as your template to add your event details.

We include a disclaimer that late fees apply to some events, so you need not include that information. Any deviations from this format take time to correct in a calendar with over 100 events, so please adhere carefully to formatting like full stops, abbreviation, and category.

Listing in the digital magazine calendar is free as a service to all events.
