Hey Trail Animals,
2012 has been an fulfilling period for Trail Animals all over the world. Our pack has growth to over 1,500 members, we’ve had another great TARC Trail Series with a dozen races and thousands of members participating at all distances and levels. Over 1,000 Animals toed the line for their first-ever trail race and over 300 tried their hand for an inaugural ultra distance – very, very impressive.
But the fun has only just begun…..
To kick off a year-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Trail Animals Running Club [founded in 1993], we have some BIG news to share:
We’re adding an exciting new feature that members have been asking for many years – TARC logo gear! We’ve partnered with one of the best technical and eco-friendly sports apparel suppliers in the business, GreenLayer, to bring you the first-ever TARC e-Store where you’ll find a sweet assortment of men’s and women’s TARC logo gear at member-only discount prices (30% off!). This stuff is schweeeeet! We’re starting with men and women short and long sleeve technical running shirts as well as singlets and jackets. If this goes well, as time goes on we’ll add more logo gear to the mix. And. As a TARC member you can also purchase anything from the Green Layer store (sans TARC Logo) and still receive our exclusive TARC member discount of 30% – how’s that for a free membership benefit?!
The store officially opens today – right now – so let the shopping begin! What better gift to give to a loved one or treat yourself to at the holidays than official TARC gear? Even Santa will be putting this on his list along with all our fellow reindeer critters J

NEW TARC (Boston) 100 Mile Endurance Run
We’ve added an exciting new event to the TARC Trail Series for 2013 – a trail hundy! Filling the otherwise ultra trail race void in June in New England, we’re introducing the TARC 100 which will be run June 14/15. You’ll want to put this puppy on your calendar. It’ll be located in metro-Boston, 100% trails, challenging but still accessible for a first-time 100 mile attempt, this New England beauty will have the usual outstanding TARC aid, trail markings and volunteers AND an official Trail Animal finisher’s jacket and an optional opportunity to collect a newly minted TARC100 belt buckle. We will offer a 50 mile distance as well – a perfect run to cap your VT100 training! More details to follow in the coming weeks but we wanted to be sure club members got the news first. We await approval of the permits – and then we’ll fill you in with more details.
Run Like A Trail Animal!
