Participants List



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 a year).

Some UTS race terms and guidelines:

Sign-in sheet.  It may be up to you to keep your own time, and sign in when you complete the run.

Water bottle.  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 the water! 

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.
