The Ultramarathon and Trail Running section is an official sub-section of WDAC made up of runners who seek to either take their running beyond the marathon distance, or who prefer running off-road on trails or rocky terrain for any length of distance.
** An Ultramarathon is a race of any distance over that of a marathon (26.2 miles).
** Trail Running tends to traverse varying terrain; hills, mountains, fields, deserts, forests, and narrow passages are common. Likewise, steep inclines or rough terrain sometimes may require hiking or scrambling. Runners participating in trail runs must often ascend and descend thousands of feet.
