We are "relaxing" entry requirements. If you DO NOT meet one of the three Entry Requirements shown below then:
1. e-mail the Race Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your experience or skill set. At the very least you must have run "some" trail ultra marathons. For example: "I ran the JFK but also ran from Montreal to Vancouver (3100 miles in 112 days) unsupported." or "I ran the Greenbrier 50k (Greenbrier Ultras) but it took 12 hours". In both cases they received entry.
Please keep in mind that MMT is a hard, rocky and arduous adventure and having trail experience is needed for success. However, we also understand that heart, desire and attitude can get you to the finish line. After your e-mail is reviewed, and if it's determined that you have ability or skill, then you will be moved from the wait list to the entrants list and your payment will be processed.
If you DO meet the requirements then go ahead and enter. You will be placed on a temporary list. Your entry will be immediately accepted and then you will receive an a-mail from ultrasignup to complete your entry.

We withhold $25 from refunds requested on, or before March 1.
We withhold $100 from refunds for withdrawals requested between March 2 and April 8.
No refunds will be issued if there is no one on the "Wait List" to fill the vacancy created by your withdraw. A wait list will be started when entry exceeds 218 entrants. If there’s no waitlist button then no refund will be issued. However an entrant can still request a refund. We will put your name on the "Refund List" but your name will also remain on the entrant list. With the 219th entrant we will issue a refund to the first person on the Refund List and move the wait listed person the the entrant list.
No refunds will be issued after April 8 regardless of waitlist. Entry into the race is closed and the waitlist is deleted.
The MMT is a challenging 100 mile trail ultra over a demanding, rocky course in the Massanutten Mountains of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The course includes short but rugged mountain climbs that total over 18,000 feet. While the May date usually avoids Virginia's brutal summer weather, we have had rain and violent storms in prior years. The event is noted for its well-stocked, friendly aid stations and good course marking. Click Here for Photo's
