The MadCity Ultras is a non-profit organization comprised entirely of volunteers. The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is recognized by the USATF as a trusted and dedicated group that has hosted the 100K National Championship race for the past 13 years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 100K National Championship was not held in 2020, and the 2021 100K event is postponed to 2022 due to timing. We are thrilled to be able to host the 50K Solo and 50K Relay events in 2021!
