The Trail Running Association (TRA) individual, annual membership, is £10 a year.
I was initially draw to the website with their race directory feature which has a really useful postcode / town, race finder. Once you’ve entered your location then there’s a drop down menu for the range of miles you are happy to travel. The race results are then shown on a map of the area and each race has its details listed.
Naturally they can’t list “every” race but there was a good selection for the area I tried.
The Race Directory can be used without joining up which I thought was a mark of their commitment to getting runners involved.
For this £10 you receive newsletters, discounts from races and a members area that will allow you to learn more about the trails and that’s why I’m now a member of the TRA.
Find a race and go run the trails.
