The AURA organizes
and/or designates a number of races to be included in the Ultra Trail Series.
Individual points are awarded for each event completed, based on the UTS
Rules. Male and Female –
Open, Master, Senior, and Super-Senior winners (Kings/Queens of the Trail) are
crowned at the completion of the series each year, based on point totals.
Some of the UTS
races are low-key, little or no-fee, no frills, minimal aid events (a.k.a.
“fun runs”), while others are full-fledged races. Please plan and prepare accordingly.
Points standings are published regularly in the AURA
newsletter. Sure, you can see them here
too, but don't be a bum--sign up for the newsletter (it's just a measly 15 bucks

This is what you need to carry on most of the runs. For minimal aid races, there might be water set out, but
there won’t be cups. Show some
consideration to your fellow runners by NOT tonguing the water jugs or wasting
Donation can. If it’s a no-fee race, there might be a donation can. Participants are encouraged to toss in a buck or two to show appreciation for those putting on the race, marking the course, providing aid, etc, or just to the AURA club.
