Course Description

You don't want to miss this spectacular run along the Continental Divide (CDT) trail!

All races begin in Thompson Park, just south of beautiful Butte America in the Sage Brush Flats parking area. You get to run on the Milwaukee Road (Trail) through some historic train tunnels (headlamp recommended) toward Pipestone pass (6,348') where you will access the CDT. You will run rolling single track on the CDT to Homestake pass (6,329'). All races end @ Homestake pass. Shuttles will be provided back to the start. Parking is available @ Homestake pass. 

A portion of each registration from each racer and an overall donation from Mountain Trail Series will be given to the Montana Food Bank School Pantry program.​ 

The mission of the School Pantry Program is to supply food and community assistance to students and families who are in need at school. There are several ways to reach students in need of food assistance. In schools where a BackPack Program is not the right fit, or additional resources are needed, School Pantries can fill the gap for students.

We feel this foundation is doing critical work to help children who are dealing with hunger. You can help support the cause by donating to the Montana Food Bank. All donations go directly to the Food Bank.

Thank you for your support.
