The Trail Running Association (TRA) exists to promote and encourage participation in Trail Running across the UK. The TRA is an associate member of UK Athletics (UKA) and supports UKA in the management and regulation of trail running. We provide several facilities for participation in the sport.
For organisers, the TRA issues race licenses on behalf of UKA, as well as providing access to insurance. The TRA also offers information and assistance in the planning and organisation of trail events, as well as offering Grants to help set up and sustain high quality trail running events which encourage participation for runners of all abilities.
For runners, the TRA offers membership which provides race entry discounts, personal insurance, a quarterly magazine called Trailrunner and the opportunity to compete in the British Trail Running Championships whilst offering access to grants to the lead athletes.
The Championship events are held across three different distances annually, short, medium and ultra distance. Please refer to the British Trail Running Championship page for further details.
The TRA is managed and overseen by a dedicated group of volunteers who all have a passion for the growth and development of the support.
