COURSE

Distance is 6 miles. Course is a combination of out-and-backs connecting three different loops. Approximately 1100 feet of both elevation gain and loss. Almost entirely single-track trails, with the exception of about a half mile of pavement.

There is ONE aid station. Located at the intersection of the Uplands & Hummocks Trails, at approximately 3 miles. This station will have water and granola bars.

Course Directions: Start at the SE corner of Aspen Leaf & Simkins Drive. Run south and then east through the sagebrush meadows, then steeply down to Aspen Leaf Dr.
Turn RIGHT onto the pavement, cross the bridge and continue uphill to the Uplands trail. Run the Uplands loop CLOCKWISE.
Finish the Uplands trail, pass through the Aid Station (mile 3) and continue onto the Hummocks trail. Turn RIGHT at every intersection on the Hummocks trail.
Return to the Hummocks trailhead and continue down the pavement and back to the finish line via the same route as the start. Don't forget to save some energy for the last steep (but short!) uphill back to the sagebrush meadows!

This event is part of a whole weekend of mountain adventures with the Arts Council of Big Sky's Mountainfilm in Big Sky festival.

Thank you to our sponsors! Bozeman Running Company, Moving Mountains Big Sky, Roxy's Market and The Hungry Moose Market and Deli.
