MUTS membership is open to anyone interested in the promotion of ultra or trail running. Contributions and memberships support our efforts to carry our and implement our vision and goals.

Your membership dues will help fund MUTS activities and goes to cover such things as website, club insurance, supplies, and events. MUTS operates as a non-profit organization with a board of 9, so 100% of what we raise goes back to you and the promotion of ultra and trail running in Mississippi. Since 2017 we have funded and provided trail volunteers for The Natchez Trace Scenic Trail, Butts Park, Jackson Prep, and the Gray Center. Proceeds from Big Butts trail race have gone to CARA and Jackson Friends of the Animal Shelter. Proceeds from Way’s Bluff trail race have gone to the Gray Center Trail Work Fund.  

Individual Memberships are $40 per year.  

Family Memberships (for up to four) are $80 per year. 

**Memberships are based on a calendar year with the plan to have most memberships renewed in the first few months of each year. 

**If you join from November through the end of the year, your membership carries over into the next calendar year.
