Join Mountain Masochist Trail Run

Started in 1983, the MMTR has earned its reputation for being one of the “best trail races in the east”. The 50 mile course itself is a physically challenging combination of roads, jeep trails, and single track that can cause even the most experienced runner to breathe a sigh of relief at the finish line in Montebello, VA. Ample aid stations and tried and true organization makes the race a perfect first 50 miler. However, you must train hard for this race; you must train yourself physically, mentally, and maybe even spiritually if you want to accomplish something truly remarkable!

Beginning in 2021 the MMTR 50 Miler course will be changing from its historical point to point from Monroe to Montebello, to an out and back course, beginning and finishing in Montebello. Dramatically altering a racecourse as historic as Mountain Masochist is not a decision we have taken lightly; however, we feel the 2021 changes will offer more enjoyment to our runners. Centralizing the start and finish location means no more 4AM or earlier wake-up call for runners. No more hour plus bus ride in the dark. Camp Montebello, the historical finish of the race has agreed to host us as the start and finish location, bringing back a lot of historic finishes for the race. We are excited for what the new course will bring – new challenges, offering runners more ‘trail time’ in the Blue Ridge mountains and less time on gravel roads. Less travel time for support crews. Additionally, we are pleased to be adding the MMTR 50K to the lineup of races, for runners who want to taste just a little masochism. This news will certainly be met with mixed reactions – anger, pain, joy, pain, relief, pain. Exactly what you will experience during the race – in that order. There will certainly be challenges moving forward in 2021, but we are hopeful these changes will first and foremost allow us to continue MMTR, and secondly to preserve as much of the history and legacy of the Mountain Masochist as possible.
