Welcome to Moose on the Loose!

 

Kids can do hard things, and have fun doing them. We believe:

  • Doing your best, pushing yourself and helping others is fun.

  • Running is fun - running on dirt is more fun.

  • Kids can do hard things.

With these driving beliefs, Moose on the Loose Kids Trail Running Series was created. Our races are designed to be achievable and enjoyable for all levels of runners, with the goal of inspiring kids to do their best, push themselves, and believe in themselves.

Quinn's Round Valley | August 10

The perfect trails to kick off our race season! Round Valley offers non-technical soft-surface double track trails and is the perfect introduction to trail running. The Mighty Moose will also get a taste of some great flowing single-track on their course. Much of the course is visible from the start/finish area and runners and spectators are treated to an awesome view of the Wasatch while running through sage, scrub oak, and a variety of wildflowers.

N Round Valley Trailhead | July 13

 

This race will challenge our runners with a mix of smooth trails and more technical terrain. The Mighty Moose and the Junior Moose will utilize the fantastic Happy Gilmore and TM Trails, running 100% on the fun single track that Park City is known for. Mini Moose will run an equally challenging route on double-track to allow plenty of space for their adult running partners. Much of the routes are visible from the start/finish area.

You can't beat fall at the Olympic Park! Races will start and finish at the base of the Olympic ski jumps and use the surrounding trail system. These trails will challenge racers with the most vertical gain and loss of the series.
