Five options, 13.1 miles of trails each. Think you have what it takes? If so, it’s time to compete in the Whitewater Race Series 2020 edition of the Half Marathon Series. Beginning with The New South Trail Half Marathon in March, runners will jockey for various awards and prizes over the course of all five races. The series concludes with the Wild Vine Half Marathon in early November. If you’re ready to test your long-distance trail running in 2020, look no further.
