Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile Run
All of the information you should need for the 2006 MMT is on this page or linked to it. If your question is not answered here, you may contact the RD, Stan Duobinis.
The MMT is a challenging 100 mile trail ultra over a demanding, rocky course in the Massanutten Mountains of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The course includes short but rugged mountain climbs that total over 18,000 feet. While the May date usually avoids Virginia's brutal summer weather, we have had rain and violent storms in prior years. The event is noted for its well-stocked, friendly aid stations and good course marking. The starting field is limited to 150 runners. In 2005, the race reached that limit.
Questions: Please call Race Director Stan Duobinis at 410-987-8172 if you have questions. The RD answers questions a lot better before 9 PM, Eastern Time. You may also e-mail the RD by using the contact form.

MMT Course Map
This is a map shows in gross terms how the 2006 course has been changed because of the fire and the forest closings. This map is not to scale and not precise. But it should give you a general orientation. The map is "borrowed" from the Shenandoah National Park map. The aid station numbers on this chart are no longer correct.
The outbound course is in red the second half of the course is in blue. You run south on red and north on blue. Several landmarks are noted. The aid stations are marked by their old numbers last year. The parts of the old course that will not be used have been marked out.

Hiking the 71-mile Massanutten Trail
PATC's Massarock Crew completed many years of trail construction on Massanutten Mountain in 2001. The Forest Service then combined this newly constructed trail tread with other trails, creating a continuous 71-mile loop, orange-blazed, and named it the Massanutten Trail.
