Description

Join the Yellowstone Rim Runners for the first race in our 2021 Free 3 club race series: Rims to River. This 8K (4.97 miles) race along the paved multi-use trail provides views of both the Rims and the Yellowstone River. This year, we have two options for you: 

  1. In-Person, Self-Timed Race with the Club: In place of our usual Wednesday night group run on June 2 at 6:00 pm, we'll race together. This option provides a festive race atmosphere and some friendly competition! Please time yourself at this race and submit your time; there is no official timer and mat. Please arrive early so we can all start running at 6:00 pm. Plan to stick around afterward to socialize. All speeds of runners and walkers are welcome!
  2. Virtual Race:  Can't join us on Wednesday night? No problem, you have a whole week to complete the race, including two weekends. We'll post the course. You run and submit your time.

Want to participate, but don't feel like submitting a time? You also have the option to mark that you completed the event without a time. Click on the Results tab, go through the process of submitting your time, and you will see a check box to mark that you participated, but do not wish to report your time.

Free Entry for All Yellowstone Rim Runner Members

This race is free to all current Yellowstone Rim Runners. When you register, RunSignup will check for your membership automatically and change your price to $0. If you aren't a Yellowstone Rim Runner, it is cheaper to register for club membership. Not only will this race be free, but you will get all the benefits of club membership. First, join Yellowstone Rim Runners here ($15 individual/$24 family, plus processing fee), then come back and register for this race. 

Parking

Park in the upper Metra lot. If you're doing the in-person option, we'll meet up in the parking lot and walk to the start line together. Please arrive early, so we can begin at 6:00 pm.
