5K | APRIL - JUNE 2023

Tiny Trail Races is our fun summer 5K trail series through some of greater Portland's hidden and beautiful trail networks! Runners of all ages and levels will get to enjoy a dash through the woods, all while helping support local land trusts, towns, and non-profits maintain these spectacular spaces. Each race will be capped to 50 runners per event, hence the "tiny" trail race!

Pride Preserve - April 11th at 5:00PM
Lowell Preserve - May 9th at 5:00PM
Frazier Preserve - June 6th at 5:00PM

Each course is on commonly used trails, though some sections include rocks, roots, and narrowed segments. These trail networks are a great for all ages and levels to run on. Each course will be marked with orange pin flags and white chalk. One aid station stocked with water and light snacks will be at the start/finish line for runners only.


All runners who complete the series will receive a finishers tech shirt. Top male and female runners will receive prizes from our sponsors and a custom made award! Each race will be at three different locations to make up the series: Pride Preserve, Lowell Preserve, and Frazier Preserve.



JULY 8, 2023

Portland's only backyard ultra on the iconic Back Cove Trail! Test yourself over and over (and over) again in a 24 hour period, or until the last biped remains standing. Think you have what it takes? Let's find out!

July 8, 2023 - 10am

Every hour on the hour you'll head out to complete the 4.16 mile Back Cove loop, in a test of physical and mental fortitude.
There will be an aid station and porta potties at the start/finish area in Payson Park with water, packaged snacks, electrolyte/salt packets, and ice available during the heat of the day. You should plan to bring everything else you think you'll need in addition to these basics.




13M, 50K, 50M | AUGUST 26, 2023

Firebird Trail Race is a challenging and wicked fun trail race with distance options of 13M, 50K & (new this year) 50M, that runs on donations, positive vibes, and a crushingly technical course in Falmouth, Maine.

The 10 mile loop in Lowell Preserve and thru North Falmouth Community Forest is technical and challenging, with lots of rocks and roots on mostly single-track trails. All events start and finish in Lowell Preserve at the Windham Fire Station.

- 13M course: one loop in Lowell Preserve and North Falmouth Community Forest plus 5k loop in Lowell
- 50K course: three loops in Lowell Preserve and North Falmouth Community Forest plus 5k loop in Lowell (this one gives you a little extra for your registration fee)

*The 2023 course will vary from prior years, as we manage locations of aid stations and runner safety*.

Unlike other races, to get in you must donate to a non-profit of your choice in addition to paying the low cost registration fees! Runners must donate to a non-profit of your choice within a year before the race then send us a receipt to confirm entry. We would appreciate donations of at least $40, with a $20 minimum required.
