Coronavirus Emergency

TRA guidance update 22 June 2020: Although the government’s coronavirus restrictions are being relaxed there remains restrictions on social distancing.  Competitive activity remains suspended so that the EA guidance is followed. The TRA will continue to monitor the guidance provided by EA and UKA issuing permits again when safe and authorised to do so. 

Competition is suspended until at least the 31st of July although the suspension may continue beyond this date.  Permit applications will resume being processed when the position regarding a return to normality becomes clearer.

The TRA supports this statement, and urges all members, trail runners, and race organisers to follow the advice.
 

What is the Trail Running Association?


The TRA promotes and encourages participation in the athletic discipline of Trail Running throughout the United Kingdom and provides guidance and facilities for organisers of trail races.

The TRA is an associate member of UK Athletics (UKA). The TRA supports UKA in the management and regulation of trail running, and through this association with UKA, the TRA is able to issue permits to race organisers on behalf of UKA. 

The TRA awards grants to race organisers to encourage the promotion of trail running events.

Further details of how the TRA assists race organisers can be found on the Organisers page.

The TRA also arranges British Trail Running Championships. These events are held across three different distances, short, medium and ultra distance.  Please refer to the British Trail Running Championship page for further details.

TRA Championship Grants are offered to the first male and female TRA members who qualify for a grant to finish in each of the three BritishTrail Running Championships in each year.  Further information is available here.

The TRA also publishes a quarterly magazine called Trailrunner, organises the Ridgeway Challenge 86 Miles and the Thames Ring 250 until 2019.
