About the American Trail Running Association (ATRA)
The American Trail Running Association (ATRA), was formed in 1996 as a Colorado non-profit to serve the mountain, ultra and trail (MUT) running community. Our mission is to promote the sport, encourage trail conservation, advocate for trail access and promote healthy, outdoor lifestyles. We offer memberships for individuals, running clubs, race directors and your favorite trail running brands.

Chase. “Legacy Membership allows trail running enthusiasts to make a substantial, one-time donation to a not-for-profit that stands for and supports their passion.”
