The Ultra Trail Series
encompasses a number of AURA races and fun runs.
Individual points are awarded for each event completed, based on the UTS
Rules. Male and Female –
Open, Master, Grand 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, 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--join the club and get the newsletter.
