All half marathon runners are invited to participate in the Brazen Ultra Half Series.

The series consists of our toughest half marathons. Most measure at least a little (and sometime more than just a little) longer than 13.1 miles. What really makes them "ultra", however is the serious ascents and descents and variety of tough trails you have to run to finish them. While flat half marathons are always a challenge, these "ultra-half-marathons" take it to another level!

How The Series Works

To be a series finisher, you must run at least five eligible races in the series, listed below, plus the 2024 Rocky Ridge Half Marathon.

The Rocky Ridge Half Marathon in 2024 will be the Brazen Racing Ultra-Half Series Finale.

How To Enter The Series

Participants of the series half marathons are automatically listed in the standings once they have finished three or more races.

It is important to always register for the your races with the same name.  If you intend to be a series participant and get married and change your name (or register under any sort of name variation for any reason), please contact us so we can update our records.


Every race has a total elevation gain associated with it.  This is the amount of climbing you do from start to finish.

To join this exclusive club you will need to participate in the series and accumulate at least 4 miles (21,120 feet).  Those who reach that goal will be noted with the High Flyer status and will be awarded the High Flyer patch upon series completion.

Note: Only the races (and distances) listed below (under "Eligible Races") count toward your elevation total.  Only those who complete the annual series (five eligible races, plus the Rocky Ridge Half Marathon) become official members of the "High Flyer Club."

For the 2023/24 season we are saying goodbye to the checks and hello to finisher hoodies for all, plus customized series finisher coasters. The top ten finishers in the male and female divisions will also get the exclusive Ultra Half Series Top Ten shirts.

Eligible Races



All participants must read, understand and adhere to the the rules of the Brazen Racing Ultra Half Series.

How The Series is Scored

Because some courses are faster than others, the cumulative series winner will be that runner with the lowest "time back" for their five best races, plus the Rocky Ridge Half Marathon. "Time back" is the amount of time a runner is behind the overall male division or female division winner. The lower the total amount of time, the higher the runner will rank. The winner of each race will have the lowest "time back" for that race, which is 0.

Standings & Results

Participants are ranked after they have finished 5 races.  They are included on the list of series participants after 3 races.


"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again (because there is no effort without error and shortcoming); but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
