7th Year of the YUTC
This Saturday will be the 7th year of the Youngstown Ultra Trail Classic-usually referred to as "YUTC" (pronounced yut-zee).
Our club race has grown in popularity, with 55 finishers in the first year, in 2005.
A 25K race was added in 2008, with 26 finishers.
Compare that to 2010, 76 finishers in the 50K, with 51 finishers in the 25k.
Our race profiles the beauty of Mill Creek Park, right in the middle of Youngtown, Ohio. Most runners who encounter MCP for the first time can't believe the luck of having this park right in the middle of an urban city.
Or the fact that a trail race runs across an interstate.
This is the last year that Bob Combs will be the Race Director. Bob has moved out West and returned for his last YUTC. Thank you for all your hard work, Bob!
The weather is looking great for the Saturday race: low of 48, high of 70 degrees F. Almost perfect for a late summer trail race. We look forward to seeing you there!
