Ohio Valley Trail Series

The Ohio Valley Trail Series (OVTS) is a mini-series comprised of three (non-paved) trail races. Our goal is to promote the beauty of nature, offer an alternative to “just” road racing, to promote trail running & walking, and of course, to advertise each individual race. Every year we offer an incentive for those individuals who complete all three events. In 2012, we had 15 people complete the series. Each was given a pair of running gloves. In 2013, that number jumped up to 40! All of these people got a custom T-shirt. Who knows how many people we can get to experience nature’s beauty. We invite you to be a part of this series:
