We will race rain or shine. Bad weather is irrelevant if you're dressed properly. Please make sure you are prepared for the day. Throughout the series, you'll encounter cold temperatures, hot days, rain, wind and all the other variables Mother Nature loves to throw at you!


Recommended Gear
Trail shoes are highly recommended for these races. With the exception of Oleson Cabin and Blue Springs, the trails are not highly technical. Although, that's not to say won't find rocks, roots and other hazards on course. We also recommend some sort of handheld hydration system be it a full pack or single handheld bottle. We DO NOT have cups at our aid stations so please come prepared to fill your bottle.

OUR MISSION IS TO ENRICH THE LIVES
OF INDIVIDUALS STRUGGLING WITH
MENTAL HEALTH.

 

 

We come alongside individuals, providing educational support and treatment options. Please don't think our mission is limited to just people who run. This is much bigger than that. Running is not the focus; but rather the people we can impact. Our focus is to bring light to the real struggles and challenges that are associated with mental health.

SERIES POINTS

Every person who runs has the opportunity to earn series points. By placing in the top 10 in your gender and course distance, you automatically earn points. The person with the most points at the end of the series, wins! 

The variables for calculating points are gender and distance. Below are the final categories for 2022.

SUSTAINABILITY

We're so lucky to have a bounty of beautiful trail networks in our backyard. Mammoth is committed to keeping these trails clean and accessible for future use. We understand the impact events have on trail  systems, the parks and the communities around them and take extra measure to ensure the impact from any of our events are minimal. Below are some things you can expect to find at the event.

Recycling Cans. Please make sure things like gels and other nutrition wrappers make their way into the recycle bins.

Cupless Event. All our events are cup-less. This means we will not have paper cups at any aid station or water fill up stations. Each runner is responsible to bring his or her own reusable cup and reusable /hydration bottle. 

Carpooling. We recommend carpooling with friends or with your team on race day. Not only does it save in gas and emissions, but also makes the day more fun and enjoyable. Traveling with friends is always better than traveling alone.
