BUTS is a club for trail running and ultra-marathon enthusiasts. The club began as a group of friends who were competitive trail runners. It has since evolved into a large community of runners and hikers with a broad range of ability. The mission of BUTS is to promote, support and grow the local trail community through service, events and races while creating fun, safe and happy trails.
