So, you’re sure you want to do this? Really sure? Well, it’s not a guarantee just yet. Once you’ve decided that you’re going to put your body through the wringer, you have to apply for the race.
The number of runners, is limited by the permit we receive from the US Forest Service. There are over twice as many applicants as there are available spots in the race. Unfortunately not everyone who applies will get in. A system has been developed by the selection committee that supports hardworking volunteers, local non-profit organizations, and still gives everyone that applies a chance to participate.
It is a process that is fair and supports the spirit of the Bridger Ridge Run.
Automatic entry is granted to three groups:
Preferential status is given to the following people:
All Other Runners
Lottery - All other runners will be selected through a fair electronic random selection process.
When you go online to complete your race application you will have the opportunity to write a short paragraph stating why you would like to be in the race. The paragraph can only be 1000 characters but just might increase your chances of getting into the race. If you choose not to write one, it doesn’t lower your chances in the lottery. Every essay is read and discussed by the selection committee. And when there are 600 plus entries, it is a long process. If you supply a compelling reason for entry, tell a good story, or mention that you worked an aid station last year, swept, or hauled water several times, you might be granted automatic entry.
