Full Moon 25k/50k/50m is the Ultra Trail Series season kickoff race and a celebration event honoring birthdays of favorite AURA Queens.
The race is great for first time trail and ultra runners, pavement pounders and PRs! The out-and-back course is set on rolling Forest Service Roads .
The run starts at Camp Ouachita Girl Scout Camp in the Ouachita National Forest. There are restrooms onsite and showers at the campground nearby we have paid for your use. So plan to stick around for the after-party. This year, we’re serving breakfast just like the old days. But we’ll still have the regular goods and super cold watermelon for sure!
Bring your running family and friends. Spectators are welcome and will probably be recruited to volunteer! (See our volunteer page for opportunites). Please carpool if you can! Parking is limited to the west side of Highway 324. NO PARKING ON THE EAST SIDE OF THE ROAD. (The side closest to the camp is off limits.) NO EXCEPTIONS. The Forest Service is very serious about this and will ticket and/or tow your vehicle. Follow parking directors as you pull in. There is no fee for parking unless you decide to park on the wrong side of the road – the ticket is $240.
Expect heat, humidity & darkness. Bring a headlamp, salt and a 20 oz + water bottle. Bug Spray — Good idea!
