Queens and Kings of the Trail!
The 2015-2016 Ultra Trail Series awards ceremony will be held after the run. This is a NO-POINTS UTS run. It is the season-closer and basically a celebration of the end of another amazing year in Arkansas ultrarunning. A chance to close out the year with your closest friends.

To get there:
You should be able to find Williams Junction, AR on most maps; it is approximately 30 miles west of Little Rock on Hwy 10, or 20 miles south of Morrilton on Hwy 9.  To get to the race site from Williams Junction, go north on Hwy 10/9 for a mile and a half, then take Hwy 324 and follow for three and a half miles. Turn left into Lake Sylvia Park. If the road turns to gravel you went half mile too far.

No entry fee, no frills. There will be a donation can to help cover expenses.
The parking fee at Lake Sylvia is $3.00
There will be a waiver to sign morning of run.
There will be an unmanned aid station at mile 9.5 (not part of Kitty) and at mile 14 (mile 6 for Kitty).
Please carry a water bottle and any snacks you want. Food at the aid stations will be minimal.
There is a swim area at the finish line for those who want to cool off after the run.
A cook will serve lunch before the awards ceremony.
For more information, contact the race director Chris Block 501-454-1525

Course Description
The roads/trails used, in order, for The Catsmacker course: Course marking will consist of signs, flagging with colored ribbon, and flour to mark directional information. In general, the focus is on marking turns and intersections. "Confidence" markings will be relatively rare. In addition, copies of maps will be made available to participants.

Runner Safety:
It is always a good idea to carry a cell phone. The service is poor but most for of the course is higher up and has some service. If you are unfamiliar with the area, run with a buddy and study the Google Map. Print out the Course Map and carry it with you.
