Regional Ultra and Trail Run Calendar

 

Below are some select ultra and trail running events in the area that we are familiar with.

If a new race date has not been confirmed for the current year, the date from the previous year is listed in red.  You should always verify the race date on the actual race site.

 

We are happy to include ultrarunning events in the greater Arkansas area, and also trail runs of significant distance--roughly half-marathon distance or longer.  For corrections or additions, please contact Stan (keeping in mind the stated scope of this calendar).

 

For more complete national ultra and trail calendars we suggest visiting Ultrarunning Magazine or Trailrunner Magazine.  For more information on running in the Arkansas area--especially marathon and shorter distance races, we suggest visiting ArkansasRunner.com or the Arkansas RRCA website.
