January 4-5, 2014 at Alcoa, Tennessee
It's back! An urban ultra to start the new year off with a bang. This fat ass style event was so popular in 2013 that we've brought it back as a full fledged race for 2014. There will be timing chips, swag, some really nice volunteers, lots of aid station support, and some really cool finishers awards. We’re here to have a good time!
The best part about being finished was receiving the cool belt buckle which is a pistol and the barrel even spins! It is my favorite buckle so far. The Pistol Ultra was a great race with wonderful runners encouraging each other as we passed one another each lap.Kathy Smith, 2013 Overall Women's Winner - 100 Miler, 17:03:14
The course had the perfect mixture of rolling hills to make things interesting while being "flat enough" for me to be blessed with a new PR. I feel blessed to have been apart of the inaugural Pistol 100 mile Ultra!Greg Armstrong, 2013 Overall Winner-100 Miler, 16:21:33
The race was very well organized with top notch aid stations and volunteers. The Pistol had 3 race distances to choose from: 50K, 100K and 100 miles. I chose the 100 mile option which consisted of six 15 mile loops plus and added 6 mile out and back on your 7th loop.Kathy Smith, 2013 Overall Women's Winner - 100 Miler, 17:03:14
I came across The Pistol Ultra and expected an event with minimal support, no volunteers, and a lonely finish in the dark. I was surprisingly wrong. Will Jorgensen has put together a top notch race that represents Tennessee well as the only 100 mile running race.Greg Armstrong, 2013 Overall Winner-100 Miler, 16:21:33
