    Good morning,

    When can I register for next year’s Berryman marathon?
    I want to mark my calendar.

    Thank you!

      Hello Julie,

      We do not have an preregistration for the 2014 event. The 2014 registration will open on January 1st. It fills up fast but we will make sure the know time is set so you can be ready. In the past it has been noon but I cannot say for certain if we will do that same time again. We also have added another 50 this year on the Berryman trail in September which is the Mark Twain 50. It still has spots available. Thanks!

    Hey Slugmin, I must be looking in all the wrong places for the results for the Berryman 50. Can you point me in the right direction.

      Hello Richard. I have fixed the link for the PDF but could not find anything wrong with the link. When I check it, it went to the page on to pay dues. Either way, you should be able to use one of the ways on the site to join. Thanks for pointing it out and we look forward to having you as a member!

    Hi, I am trying to contact the director for the Flatlanders race on 1 Sept. but the link isn’t working, and I am having trouble finding a “contact us” link. I got injured (stress fracture in the hip) a couple months ago and I am needed to see if I can transfer my bib? If so, who do I contact and where do I get it done? I hate missing this but even if I am healed by then I wouldn’t be properly trained and don’t want to risk another injury right before Boston next year.
    Thank you,

    • slugmin says:

      Hey Nicole, thanks for pointing that out. The “contact us” tab has been updated with the RD’s information. I connected you to the Flatlanders RD’s over email. I hope you heal up quickly!

    Good morning, Is there a waiting list for the Berryman 26.2? I’m currently trying to fill in the 50 states and The Berryman looks like a lot of fun but I see that it is all booked. Do you have any charitable spots left?

    • slugmin says:

      hello, thanks for your question. You should email the race directors of the race. David and Victoria White can be contacted at

    I’m going to be participating in the Berryman Marathon in May and the Mark Twain in September. I have a question about camping in the area. I understand that campsites are primitive. Is there a procedure for reserving a site? Thank you

    • slugmin says:


      Primitive camping is available for both races at no charge. There is not a procedure to reserve a spot. First come first serve. There is usually plenty of space to go around.
