Part of the "Beast Series" that includes the Grindstone 100 and Hellgate 100k, this race features lots of climbs. One section in the middle of the race ascends steadily for 6 miles. An old pick-up truck blaring the theme to Rocky awaits at the top, however, the switch-backs constantly tease you as the music alternates between getting closer and farther and closer again as you work your way back and forth up the face.
The MMTR was formerly directed by David Horton - famous for dreaming up tough routes that include extra bonus milage (Horton Miles!). This "50" miler is widely regarded to cover almost 54!
