I am a local trail runner who has absolutely fallen in love with ultra running. I began my quest for ultra distance on the trails right here in our backyard. After going from a non-runner to an ultra runner I wanted to share my love and passion with  other runners. No better way to do that than through providing YOU the chance to run locally.

Welcome to the SCTR Race Scholarship Page

Salt City Trail running was started because I, it's founder, saw something in running that had to be shared with everyone ... that inert ability in all of us to challenge ourselves. As stated on the "about" page I was not a runner and kept saying that's crazy to what people were doing around me.

 

I kept thinking, that is not something I could do ... "I'm not that strong of a runner" "I could never do that" "That's just too far ..." and so on. 

Well guess what ... it's not too far, you CAN do it, you ARE that strong and your body wants YOU to do it all you have to do is challenge yourself and get outside of your comfort zone. Comfort is something we take for granted and need to fight back. 

With this in mind I decided to start the SCTR scholarship fund where I am looking for people who are willing to challenge themselves and go outside their comfort zone the same as I did. I never thought it possible to run 100 miles, but I did ... twice ... and so can you.
