It’s the perfect kick-off to your race season and THE spring running fest you’ve been waiting for.

Next Opportunity Events is going back to the Hutton-Loyd Tree Farm for the first annual Bluegrass Ultra Trail Race!

This 5(ish) mile loop gives runners of all skill and experience levels the chance to see the rolling Appalachian foothills in a fun, inviting, and scenic setting. Join us for some running, bonfires by the BIG BARN, sick swag, and more!
