Trails for Titans is a family owned and operated enterprise. A TFT event is a chance to be the change you want to make in the world as you become part of a solution to aid those in need. When you accept this challenge for self accomplishment through fitness and endurance, essential funds are raised for individuals, families and community organizations that are helping others.
Adults challenge themselves on our 4+ mile muddy trail and children test their mettle on our Titan Kids Course. Some events feature live video streaming as participants tackle some of our toughest obstacles. On all event days, there is great music, healthy food, Titan merchandise, and ecology-focused vendors on the festival grounds.
Whether you come to run, volunteer, or spectate, you will enjoy a day-long fantastic fun event, where your presence will inspire others to take the challenge of changing lives.
About Trails for Titans founder, Nick Rapini
Driven by his own transformation, Nick is on a mission to inspire others toward a life changing opportunity through fitness and contribution.
This aspiration led to the Trails for Titans endurance race, challenging participants to complete an obstacle course over rugged terrain while their friends and loved ones spend a day in a festive environment.
However, Nick is on another mission as well.
Trails for Titans is structured to drive funds to charitable organizations, and individuals in need, through our events and social networks.
The recipients of the donations we raise together are confronted with overwhelming obstacles each day, an encounter Nick is all too familiar with. His 6 year old nephew, Cole, passed away with a rare brain disorder. Cole’s medical expenses exceeded one half million dollars in the first year of his life.
Nick knows how crucial financial assistance can be for families that are overwhelmed by medical expenses like Cole's.
Everyone who participates in a TFT event is reaching out to those in need with their registration dollars and donations.
You can reach out further by sharing the donations link on our website, trailsfortitans.com, with your families, friends, and associates.
Thank you for visiting Trails for Titans!
