As we move into our 41st year and think back on the history of MMTR one thing we notice is change; course changes, sponsor changes, and the date and time of when the race is run to name a few. The most significant, however, have been ownership changes.

David Horton founded the race in 1983 and directed it for 25 years before Clark Zealand took the reins and carried on the rich tradition of MMTR. Now, a new ownership group is excited to take MMTR to new heights and reach a new generation of ultra runners! Join us in welcoming Tim Spaulding, Jordan Cooter, Brenton Swyers and Michael Newhall. This group will be co-directing MMTR with their own style and fresh vision for the future while preserving the rich history of MMTR and honoring the thousands of runners who have crossed the finish line in Montebello, VA.

This year MMTR will be on Saturday, November 4th. Keep an eye out for updates on Ultrasignup, Instagram, and our new website–

We are excited about this year’s event and stoked to see YOU in Montebello on 11/4!
