The Fondren Urban Ultra is a 12 hour timed road race for individual runners and relay teams. The 3.1 mile loop is run in the beautiful neighborhood of Fondren in Jackson with a mix of hills and flat sections. The relay teams can be made up of 2-4 runners. Each loop begins and ends at Fondren Church where you can place your nutrition, tent, coolers, etc. Run one lap or 20 laps, test your limits, run your first ultra distance or a few miles….this race is for you!
USA Track and Field CERTIFIED COURSE
The 5k loop is a USATF certified course that will be used to record Mississippi state records in the 50k, 12 hour, and 100k (if anyone can run that in 12 hours). Only MS residents will be recorded for the records. Currently this is the only state certified Ultra course, and there are no MS state records in an ultra distance yet.
