7 to 76. That was the age spread of this year of ESTRS runners. Participants spanned elite runners to those that run-walk, and they love it just the same, and we love them just the same. ESTRS is stubbornly kept at 7 miles or less and $25, so the barrier to participation is low, so the gift of a well-organized communal trail running experience can be shared by all. At the crux of that, is you, the team that make these events come alive four special nights each Summer.

A highlight of each ESTRS race day(s), is showing back up at the start / finish area after marking the trail to see the familiar faces of the the people I get to do this with, doing what you do – competently, joyfully, together. Without an ounce of sarcasm I say this… it warms my heart. It is an absolute honor to be a part of this team – it is something truly special.

Thank you for selflessly giving of your time; event to event, year to year. I am grateful and our running community is grateful. I am already looking forward to 2023.

Thank You,

John Storkamp
Race Director

About ESTRS:
Remember when you were young and the summer days were hot, relaxing and seemingly endless?  Well, as adults we still get that but usually only on weekends and holidays… until now.  The Endless Summer Trail Run Series is the brain-child of two passionate Minnesota trail-running main-stays – Rocksteady Running and Twin Cities Running Company.  The series was created to provide low-key, low-pressure trail running / racing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and levels of experience. Whether you are a seasoned trail or road racer, first time trail-racer, need a tune-up for your next race, need to get in some speed-work or just want to have some pizza, pop and beer with us at the finish – running one or all of the races in the series is for you.  The Endless Summer Trail Run Series has garnered a strong local following and has gotten significant national media coverage as one of the best organized and most well attended trail running series in the country!
