Run For A Cause

Course Stats

You don't want to miss this spectacular run on Jackson Hole's world famous Skyline trail!

The race begins @ Snow King resort. You traverse the front side of Snow King mountain to access the beautiful Skyline trail. You climb on the Skyline trail for several miles before dropping down to the Cache Creek drainage.  From there you run down the Cache Creek trail before the final ascent back to Snow King resort. Views of the Tetons, wildlife, wild flowers, and not a single piece of pavement on the entire route.

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.
