BUTS Inaugural Bearly Ultra, Cub Half Ultra and Wolf Pack Relay Run!
Join the BUTS crew for our inaugural trail race on December 21st at Red Mountain Park. If you’re ready for your first ‘Ultra’ marathon and hibernation just isn’t your thing, then the “Bearly Ultra” is the run for you! A painful .8 of a mile longer than the easy 26.2 mile marathon! However, if your little paws aren’t ready for that leap in distance but still a four month nap doesn’t sound exciting, then drop down to the Cub Half Ultra. A whopping .4 of a mile longer than the typical “Half Marathon” at 13.5 miles. Finally, if you’re more of a hunter, then get your Pack together for the Wolf Pack Chase Relay. A pack of up to four runners will start exactly one hour after the bears for a relay sprint to the finish! The question is, can your pack hunt down and pass a bear?
Every Bear, Cub, and Wolf will receive a finisher’s award and since we all have no less than 30 race shirts currently in our closets, we’ll be giving away an awesome BUTS logoed hat instead!
There will be a costume contest as well as a post-race party to help soothe those weary paws!
