The Birmingham Ultra Trail Society

BUTS is a group designed to promote and facilitate the growth of the trail running community in Birmingham, Alabama. Through group runs, social events, trail work days and BUTS sponsored races we aim to provide a way for anyone and everyone to get involved. BUTS is open to anyone who believes in happy trails and wants to be part of one of the South’s best trail communities.


You can now signup for a BUTS membership at Ultra Signup. This $20 membership will help to fund BUTS events and goes to cover such things as club insurance, annual fees, supplies and social events. BUTS operates as a non-profit organization so 100% of what we raise goes back to you and the trail community.

Giving Back

We want our trails to remain nice, but they can’t clean and maintain themselves. Part of the BUTS mission is to give back to our community by holding trail work days.

Where We Run

BUTS typically runs a variety of routes at Moss Rock Preserve, Oak Mountain State Park, Red Mountain Park, and Ruffner Mountain Park almost every day of the week.Learn More
