The Nearly Final, Almost Finished, Please Double Check Ultra Series Update!

Ultra Series Update!

Greetings, UMTR Ultra Series! Apologies for the long radio silence on the Ultra Series Results. (Current standings found here.) June came and went so quickly that I feel like I slept through the month. Many of you likely feel very different, as we’ve had Chester Woods, Kettle Moraine, Black Hills, and Afton go by. There are so many great performances that I can’t begin to Read More →
