The Fall Series is a series of four races in four different city and county parks. The courses are run on trails that range from well-maintained to very rocky with exposed tree roots. And if there is water in the park, you will get wet.

This is a progressive series, meaning each run is longer than the previous one. The series scoring is based on cumulative time of all 4 races.

If you run all four races, you will receive a special award and will be eligible for age group and overall awards. If you run one, two or three races, you will get a specially designed t-shirt.

CSPD/Community Service: will be asked to patrol for illegally parked vehicles at all venues.
