Queens and Kings of the Trail!
The 2017-2018 Ultra Trail Series awards ceremony will be held after the run. This is a NO-POINTS UTS run. It is the season-closer and basically a celebration of the end of another amazing year in Arkansas ultrarunning. A chance to close out the year with your closest friends.

To get there:

Google Maps Driving Directions to race start.

You should be able to find Williams Junction, AR on most maps; it is approximately 30 miles west of Little Rock on Hwy 10, or 20 miles south of Morrilton on Hwy 9.  To get to the race site from Williams Junction, go north on Hwy 10/9 for a mile and a half, then take Hwy 324 and follow for three and a half miles. Park on right hand side of road by Camp Ouachita. If the road turns to gravel you went half mile too far.

Course Description
The roads/trails used, in order, for The Catsmacker course: Course marking will consist of signs, flagging with colored ribbon, and flour to mark directional information. In general, the focus is on marking turns and intersections. "Confidence" markings will be relatively rare. We recommend that participants print off maps if they are unsure of the course.

** Proceeds donated to AURA and Camp Ouachita.

Runner Safety:
It is always a good idea to carry a cell phone. The service is poor but most for of the course is higher up and has some service. If you are unfamiliar with the area, run with a buddy and study the Google Map. Print out the Course Map and carry it with you.
