Description

Come run this challenging but epically rewarding point-to-point half marathon with some seriously stunning views!

The course runs along the Eastern border of Glacier National Park. You'll climb for the first 5 miles and then it's all downhill. Along the way you'll be rewarded with incredible views of Glacier National Park and the prairies at its base as you climb Looking Glass Hill. You'll gaze at Two Medicine Lake during miles 5-8 and you'll finish on the front lawn of the beautiful historic Glacier Park Lodge for the awards ceremony, photos, food, and more. (Most of the pre- and post-race activities will be held in East Glacier Park Village, MT.)

Elevation Profile

The elevation change on the course is marginal. The chart makes it look like a beast, but it is only a few hundred feet. This will be a slightly challenging, but overwhelmingly beautiful course!

We'll gain 583 feet, with a max elevation at 6,383 feet.

Bib Pickup » You have 3 options for picking up your bib:

  1. Pickup at the expo (recommended)
  2. Pickup at the start line
  3. Mailed 2 weeks before the race ($20 fee)
Aid Stations

Aid stations typically start at mile 3 and are every other mile after that with a bonus aid station around mile 12. They are not always right at the mile marker so check your race guide to find out where they will be exactly. 5K races typically have a single aid station midway through the race. 

You can find toilets, water, Go Gnarly electrolyte drink, and Honey Stinger gels at every aid station. Usually around mile 7 and 11 we'll have cut fruit and bananas. 

At every aid station we'll have basic first aid supplies, and we normally station our EMT's near mile 7. 

Our road half marathons and 5Ks are cup-free. That means we will not have disposable cups available for you to use. When you register you will have the option to receive a free hydrapouch with your registration or you can use you own hydration system.
