The Trails Are Free

Founded in the 1990s, the Trail Animals Running Club (TARC) is the Boston area’s largest and oldest trail club. With a credo of “no runner left behind,” and a penchant for lighthearted trailside pranks, the trail animals have become a pseudo family for many Boston-area runners.

This film, by New England-based documentary filmmaker Lindsey Topham, follows several of the club’s leaders, delving into their mission to conserve both trail running culture and the trails themselves.

The full-length film debuts on February 26 in Arlington, Massachusetts.
