The Fondren Urban Ultra is a 12 hour timed road race for individual runners and relay teams. The 3.1 mile loop is run in the beautiful neighborhood of Fondren in Jackson with a mix of hills and flat sections. The relay teams can be made up of 2-4 runners. Each loop begins and ends at Fondren Church where you can place your nutrition, tent, coolers, etc. Run one lap or 20 laps, test your limits, run your first ultra distance or a few miles....this race is for you!


The 5k loop is a USATF certified course that will be used to record Mississippi state records in the 50k and 100k (if anyone can run that in 12 hours). Currently this is the only state certified Ultra course, and there are no MS state records in an ultra distance yet. As a MS resident, run this race and you may be an ultra state record holder for your age after April 14th!


TIME: 7am--7pm
LOCATION: 3327 Old Canton Rd. Jackson, MS
AID STATIONS: one at the start/finish area and one on the course with water, Tailwind, and sweet and salty food.
RULES: individual racers and relay teams must check in each lap. Individual runners can take breaks but must remain in the staging area. Relay teams must always have one runner on the course. A full 5k lap has to be completed in the 12 hour time limit to be counted.
PRICE: individual race $60 and price increase to $70 March 1st, relay $50/person and price increase to $60 March 1st.

2018 BIG BUTTS, presented by MUTS (MS Ultra and Trail Society), is a trail race with an individual 100k and 50k, and a 2-4 person 100k relay. The start is at the Mississippi College cross country Choctaw Trails pavilion with 7.75 mile loops on both the cross country trails and Butts Park single track trails. There is plenty of room around the start to set up your own aid, tents, coolers, chairs, etc. The course itself is not technical and has a few small hills, but the MS heat and humidity of late July make this race a BIG challenge. Only a few people over the years have completed the 100K.


Time: 7am--9pm--14 hour time limit for all 3 races
Aid Stations: S/F aid station and one aid station on the course with water, Tailwind sports drink, and food.
Entry fee: $40 for the 50K and the relay, $50 for the 100k with a $10 increase on 6/21. MUTS members get a $5 discount at checkout.
Relay: 2, 3, or 4 person relay, alternate laps however you choose. If you are the first member of your team, choose a name. Each additional member will be prompted to select that team name at registration.
Awards: top 3 male and females in each individual race and 1st relay team members will receive a custom award. And $100 if a 100k racer can beat the fastest time! 10:49

Way's Bluff Trail Run

Way's Bluff Trail Run

We are excited to run our 2nd trail race on October 27th, 2018!  Make your plans to join us for the race and to spend the weekend at the Gray Center in the Inn and Cottages!

Way's Bluff is a 50k, 25k, and 8 mile trail run on the private property of the Gray Center in Canton, MS. Mississippi Ultra and Trail Society in partnership with the staff of the Gray Center host this race. The 8 mile loop is made up of cross country, single track, and very well manicured trails through the woods and around the lakes on this beautiful land. By trail running standards it will be easy to navigate and easy terrain to run, but it will be challenging with some nice hills. 4 loops for 50k, 2 for 25k, and 1 for the 8 milers. There is an 8 hour time limit for the race.


Gray Center

The Duncan M. Gray Episcopal Camp and Conference Center offers both a year round conference center with lodging as well as the summer Camp Bratton-Green.


MUTS donated the proceeds from the 2017 race $2500 to the Gray Center trailwork fund so that they can continue to enhance and build upon their existing trails.  Thank you!
