The Yellowstone Half Marathon takes place in the town of West Yellowstone, MT, just outside the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It's a stunning course with breathtaking views of the Gallatin National Forest, huge gulps of crisp fresh air, and maybe even some wildlife.

The race starts at 7 AM sharp with a cutoff time of 11 AM. That provides runners (and even walkers) 4 full hours to take in the scenery and make your way to the finish line.

The race takes place on a dirt road and trail in Gallatin National Forest. The course starts flat but has a major and a minor hill that you need to train for. You can see a map and elevation on the course link on the website. The best part of the course is that you will be less than a mile from the west park entrance. That is only 32 miles from Old Faithful and 24 miles from the Grand Prismatic Spring!
