Georgia Ultrarunning & Trailrunning Society (GUTS) is a non-profit club of fun and adventure loving runners whose mission is to encourage and promote trail and long distance running.
Welcome to the 2021 Pine Mountain Trail Run (Oldest Trail Run in the State)! We are incredibly grateful that you've chosen to join GUTS for a year-end celebration run before everyone heads home for the holidays. This year's race will take place on Sunday, December 5th.
PMTR is celebrating 41 YEARS and is one of the oldest and storied trail runs in the country. First started in November of 1980, this trail race runs along the beautiful Pine Mountain Trail system of F.D. Roosevelt State Park. This GUTS event will test your endurance and your ankles over rocky single-track trails. Since its inception, the course has seen a few different routes and distances. For 2021 we are starting the course (19 Miler / 40 Miler) back at the "Liberty Bell" park area. This will give more runners a chance to finish within cutoff times and enjoy more time out on the trails
