Description

The Montana Cup cross-country meet offers an exploration of Montana’s magnificent open spaces. It is not a road race, nor is it an ultra-endurance trail run; it's a team event, which brings together runners from all of Montana’s cities for competition, racing across country, for the glory of claiming a “traveling trophy” - the Montana Cup.

The Montana Cup’s underlying mission is to unite the state’s widespread runners & running communities, to foster continued training & racing among Montana runners of all ages, and to leave each participant thinking ... "that course was excellent, exciting & beautiful!"

Rules

You will NOT be allowed to race without an official team jersey. Due to our ordering deadline for jerseys, your jersey size and availability cannot be guaranteed with late registration. Though that is true, plenty of extra jerseys are typically ordered.  If you'd like to choose your size, though, go ahead and order one. 

You must represent the team of the Montana city that you live in, or nearest to (team regions defined at montanacup.com). Montana residency is required, and may be verified at race-day check in. Residency is defined as “currently living, working, or schooling inside Montana.” This includes military personnel stationed in state.

Non-residents and athletes listed on the roster of any collegiate cross-country or track team may run as unaffiliated / non-scoring competitors. They will not be eligible for awards.

In 2022, women will race at 12:00 noon, and men will commence racing shortly after the finish of the women's race which will be on or about 1:00 p.m..

Every year's race course is different but the distance is always between 5k and 8k, usually with challenging cross-country running over rough terrain with grass, dirt, gravel, steep ups & downs with poor footing, and possible mud/snow crossings, etc.

Normally, any type of running/racing shoe with adequate traction and protection is appropriate. It may be a good idea to bring a variety of shoes so that you can pick the most appropriate pair after you see the course on race morning.

There is no limit on number of runners per team.

For other details see the Montana Cup website.
