Ultrarunning Matters (UM) is an ultrarunning club and RRCA member club that provides supportive camaraderie to the ultrarunning community. UM serves an international membership of runners at all levels of ability who are interested in ultra marathons; road, track, and trail foot races beyond the official marathon distance of 42.195 km or 26.2 miles.
UM promotes healthy ultrarunning as well as environmentally-sound and socially-responsible trail running participation and race management. UM currently presents three races to the ultrarunning community, CanLake 50, Green Lakes Endurance Runs, and Mind the Ducks–12 hour.
Since December 2008, UM has provided its member, non-member ultrarunners and future ultrarunners a supportive forum through its Yahoo! Discussion Group. You are encouraged to join the dialogue by going to "UM Yahoo!" on the top link bar or by clicking the logo to the right. If you don't have a Yahoo! ID, signing up is easy. You may also become a paid member of UM by downloading and filling our our membership form. More information about membeship can be found here.
