Herron Half/10k/5k Cancelled

As you may have already read from our main web page, the 2020 races have been cancelled because of the inability to responsibly hold an event of this magnitude on account of COVID-19 and because of the inability to obtain permits for these races. All currently registered participants can choose to donate their fees to Foy's to Blacktail Trails non-profit organization, get a refund for this year, less 6% Run Sign Up processing fees, or defer registration until 2021 (email Brian at brian@runflathead.com if you choose this option).

Foy’s to Blacktail Trails Organization would still like to offer trail users a way to get out and enjoy. We have flagged the 5k/10k/Half Marathon courses so you can explore the courses on your own. The courses have been marked on Saturday, September 12 and will stay up until Sunday, September 20: yellow/green for the 5k, red for the 10k and blue for the Half Marathon. All courses are run counter-clockwise and are thus marked for runners going in that direction. You will also see some pink flags for the marathon course mixed in with the other flags where it merges with some of the other routes.  See maps on our main website for details.  If you would like to print a copy of the map, email Brian at brian@runflathead.com and I can send you a .PNG file for you to print.

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that this event is a fund raiser for the non-profit Foy's to Blacktail Trails Organization and that your funds will go to a worthwhile cause. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at another one of our fund raising events in the future!

We understand. We hope you can join us next year.

These races are our largest annual fundraisers. We’ve kept registration fees low over the last 9 years to keep the events affordable.
