With more than 400 runners braving the first wave of desert heat at Mesquite Canyon we have closed this year’s edition of the Desert Runner Trail Series. I received multiple emails from runners asking about the series and whether they needed to “clear up their schedule” to come out and race with the opportunity to make the podium. Hopefully you were out there to stake your claim within the running community!
