Mini MUTT - Team Trail Race 2017 Overview

Welcome to MUTT team trail racing! The Mini MUTT team trail race is the shortest of the 2 race MUTT series races scheduled for 2017. MUTT team trail races are NOT relay races but rather team trail races that require 4 team members to start and stay together at the beginning of the race, and one by one turn around at the halfway point of each individual distance. The format allows for different distance runners to race together, and also assures each runner contributes to the success of the team. Pace strategy is critical in assuring the best team time.

The Mini MUTT Race

Each team will consist on a 3.1, 6.2, 10, and 13.1 mile runner. At the start of the race, each team will start out running together and MUST stay together until they reach the 1.55 mile mark, then the 3.1 mile runner will turn around and return to the start/finish line completing the 3.1 mile run, while the remaining three runners continue on. At the 3.1 mile mark, the 6.2 mile runner will turn around and head back to the start/finish line, with the remaining two continuing on. At mile 5, the 10 mile runner will return and so on. Once all 4 runners return to the finish line completing their individual distances, all four times are tabulated for the total team time. Individual awards are given as well.
