Every year we here at iRunfar repeatedly stuggle to find the schedule of USATF MUT (that’s Mountain/Ultra/Trail) national championship races. That’s why we’re publishing it ourselves this year.

* The Mountain Running Championships are also the National Mountain Running Team selection races. The top 6 men, top 4 women who accept join the team.

Are you planning on running one of these races? Does the fact that a race is a US National Championship draw you to it? What do you think about there being eight different USATF ultrarunning championships next year?

USATF Administrative Notes

There will be a USATF Trail Series at the sub ultra distance in 2011 to include the 10km, 15km, half marathon, mountain championships. If a marathon or other sub-ultra distance is added in the championship schedule, it will be included in the series scoring.
