MARATHON

The 26.2 mile course starts on unpaved Jackson Creek Road at historic Malmborg School. Runners follow Jackson Creek Road to paved Bridger Canyon Road. Breathtaking views of the Bridger Mountains and an easy downhill grade make up this section of the race.

Runners then turn to unpaved Kelly Canyon Road and encounter a challenging hill that leads to the campsite where Captain William Clark and other expedition members camped in 1806. This marks the halfway point of the race.

Next, the course opens onto blacktop, passes near the historic Fort Ellis archeological site and heads into town following Bozeman Trail and Kagy Boulevard. Runners hit scenic trails in Bozeman proper, crossing through Lindley and Burke Parks before heading southwest to Sourdough Trail, then west to the finish line at Sacajawea Middle School.

All marathon finishers receive a long sleeve T-shirt and finisher’s medal.
