Way's Bluff Trail Run
Way's Bluff is a 50k, 25k, and 8 mile trail run on the private property of the Gray Center in Canton, MS. Mississippi Ultra and Trail Society in partnership with the staff of the Gray Center are hosting this inaugural race. The 8 mile loop is made up of cross country, single track, and very well manicured trails through the woods and around the lakes on this beautiful land. By trail running standards it will be easy to navigate and easy terrain to run, but it will be challenging with some nice hills. 4 loops for 50k, 2 for 25k, and 1 for the 8 milers. There is an 8 hour time limit for the race.
