About This Activity

M.U.T.T. 2014 Overview

The Mid-Michigan Ultimate Team Trail event is a new trail race concept that is the first of its kind. The M.U.T.T. is NOT a relay race, but rather a team race that incorporates 4 runners each running different lengths (5m, 10m, 20m, 31m) of the same course. The race takes place on a beautiful 10 mile trail loop at Mid-Michigan Community College. Wearing matching bib numbers, the 4 members of each team will start together and one by one turn back at different points along the course. The team must stay together until they reach each of the turnarounds, then each runner will run the return route of their leg at their own pace. The 4 finishing times will be tabulated and the combined results will determine the winners. As always, our music, food, and Adirondack chairs will await your return; don’t miss this event!

Course Description:

Mid-Michigan Community College's Harrison Campus sits on 560 acres of beautiful, wooded land. As a service to the community, the college and various community groups have developed trails through the property for the public to enjoy. The race course is a flowing 10 mile main trail through various terrain and grades. The trail is all single track mountain bike trails. The format of the event is as follows:

The team will start together and enter the 10 mile loop via a waterfall start. Teams will be separated by 5 minute gaps to spread out traffic on the trail. At each turnaround, race officials will check to make sure the required number of runners is still together.

  • At the 2.5 mile mark, the first runner will turn back and head to the start while the remaining three runners continue.

  • At the 5 mile mark, the second runner will turn back and head to the start while the remaining two runners continue.

  • At the 10 mile mark, the third runner will turn back and head to the start while the Ultra runner continues on alone.

  • At the 15.5 mile mark, the final runner will turn back and head to the start completing the race

The first three runners are encouraged to join the final mile as a glory leg to finish the race together!

PLEASE NOTE: ALL participants will receive a t-shirt at this event.  However, to ensure you receive an EVENT SPECIFIC shirt, you MUST register on or before Monday, June 9th.
