The third running of The Three Sisters Ultra Festival is once again a 24 hour, 12 hour, or 6 hour timed event that will be run on the trails in the beautiful Maryville College Woods. New for this year is the 12 hour night option -- run under the stars in the cool night air until the sun comes up! There's an extra question for day vs. night on the 12 hour single and 12 hour relay races. We want more people in the woods at night!

The course is a 3.125 mile loop that will start and end at the McArthur Pavilion at the edge of the woods. You'll be able to access aid (and enjoy the warm fireplace!) every loop, as well as have the opportunity to set up your own personal aid area underneath the pavilion.

We think this will be a great first ultra:

  10 loops = 50K

  20 loops = 100K

  32 loops = 100 Miles!

Also, there is a relay option! For the 6 hour race, you can have up to 4 people on your relay team, and for the 12 and 24 hour races you can have up to 6 people. No restriction on how many laps each team member runs, so theoretically you could have a team with one runner and a bunch of people who just sit around and drink the whole time. And hopefully cheer the runner on! Hehe so if you don't feel like running the whole time (or just want to sit around and drink for 24 hours) here's your option!

Once again, we'll have a few bands playing, as well as other activities in case you want to take a break from all the running. For instance, when have you ever played a quick nine holes of disc golf in the middle of an ultra?
