We are stoked to announce that Will Jorgensen and his team at Life Wide Open have taken over the reins for the 2021 Tsali Frosty Foot Fest. A huge thanks to Aaron Saft and his staff for all the hard work they have done to make this event the great experience it has been for so many years. Also to the Faulkners for starting this legacy in 2009. This page will be updated with the 2021 event info shortly. We can’t wait to see you all there. Stay tuned!
The Tsali Trail Races started in 2009 and has quickly become very popular, always selling out before the registration closing date. It 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. Join us!
