2019 Rocksylvania Trail Series
Beginning in early 2018, the central PA trail running scene took on a brand new look, breaking away from the old Trophy Series to form the new Rocksylvania Trail Series. Now we’re back at it for 2019, amping this new series up to include 20 different courses, all teaming up together to showcase some of the best trail races in the state.
The 2019 series includes 20 PA trail races broken down into four divisions based on race distance, including our brand new Ultra division. These are the divisions:
Division 1 – 10K
Division 2 – Half Marathon
Division 3 – 25k
Division 4 -- Ultra
The new format gives runners the option of concentrating on distances that are more to their liking. You can run as many or as few races as you’d like, but the more races you run in one particular division, the better your chances are at winning a prize. Falcon Timing will be scoring each runner based on their age group finish at each race and prizes will be awarded to the top male and female of each age group at the end of the year.
To earn a Rocksylvania tech tee, a runner must either run all 5 races in one division or finish at least 8 total races in the series. For more info on the series and past results, check out the Falcon Timing Rocksylvania page. Good luck everyone!!
