Considered one of the toughest trail races in North America and maybe the world it tests every individual that attempts it to their fullest. Held in Bozeman, Montana around the middle of August this race has a gain of over 6,800 vertical feet AND 9,500 foot loss.  With an exposed ridgeline this race is not for the faint of heart. To make it even more difficult the “short” way down is 19.65 miles filled with loss ground, rocks, and even boulder. This means that less intimidating route means the length of the race gets extended to over 20.55 miles. This is a serious run for any trail runner that wants to test themselves.
