Buts Bearly Ultra

2011 Frankfurt Drive

Birmingham , AL 13.5 Miler, 27 Miler, Relay

This Event Took Place Sat. Dec 21, 2013

Overview

Join the BUTS crew for our 2nd annual trail race on December 20th 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 some race swag! 
 
There will be also be a post-race party to help soothe those weary paws!
 
Registrations met capacity last year so register early to ensure you have your spot!

You must register by December 2nd to ensure you get your race shirt.
