BUTS Bearly Ultra, Half, 5K


The course design for our 5th annual race will incorporate freshly blazed and beautiful single track trails of red iron ore, weaving through this transformed historic mining park; a challenge for both the new and gnarly trail runner alike!

For 2017 we are doing BUTS BEARLY ULTRA Hats instead of shirts for all three races. So don't miss out on yours.

Every 27 Mile and 13.5 Mile finisher will receive a finisher’s award! The 5K will be a fast and fun out-n-back course on the BMRR South Trail. This race will fill up quickly so register early to ensure you have your spot!

Supporting our local trail systems~it's what we do.

As always a portion of your entry fee will be donated back to the park! BUTS values the Birmingham area trails, and we hope you do too. One of our purposes is to help maintain, upkeep, and create new trails so you and your loved ones may enjoy them. Red Mountain Park has been a wonderful addition to our park family! They are assiduous collaborators, and we want to honor and support the park's future goals.

Course Description

The course has a variety of single track, a little power line trail at the start, and beautiful rail bed trails that are flat and fast.
