OVERLOOK

The Tsali Trail Races has something for everyone. Even if you've never raced on trails before, Tsali is a great place to make it your first! With gently rolling hills, well groomed trails, and picturesque views of Lake Fontana, Tsali is a great event to start off your new year! We're heading into the 5th year under my direction of the event, and it's one I always look forward to!
