Runners receive a finisher’s pint glass, post-race barbecue, and a shuttle to the start. Aid stations will have bountiful provisions. Two types of shirt are available for an additional fee, tech or soft non-tech, a nice option that more events should offer.
The top three men and women and the top masters will win prizes, including a limited edition sample of Trail Butter. Age group winners will earn an engraved pint glass. Everyone will also have a chance to win a variety of raffle prizes. The NUT races are also part of the Northwest Mountain Trail Series and the Trail Runner Trophy Series.
I can definitely see the appeal of trail ultras, even if they are often 10 to 20 times too long. Sometimes you feel like a NUT, sometimes you don’t.
