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, so 100% of what we raise goes back to you and the promotion of ultra and trail running in Mississippi. In 2018 we have funded a trail work day at Butts Park and on the Fannye Cook trail. We donated $1000 to the Jackson Friend of the Animal Shelter from our proceeds from the 2018 Big Butts trail race. In 2017 we donated our proceeds from Big Butts to CARA - $500 and from Way's Bluff  to the Gray Center - $2500.  We also donated towards the Fannye Cook project with funding a trail work day in June.  

Individual Memberships are $40 per year.  

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

**Starting in January 2018 memberships will be 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.
