McCall Trailrunning Classic 2024 – McCall

July 12 - July 13

Free
Best Trail Running Races in the US IMTUF Idaho Mountain Trail Ultra Festival McCall Burgdorf Hot Springs Idaho

When the word “Classic” is used there are two definitions that come to mind:

  1. Something judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality of its kind.
  2. Remarkably and instructively quintessential.

The McCall Trailrunning Classic fits into the second definition. It’s a showcase of what makes McCall, Idaho one of the most beautiful places on the planet as well as a great place to have adventures in the great outdoors. In its sixth year this race is a perfect beginner’s introduction into the more formidable IMTUF 100 that happens later in the year. With big views, high altitude peaks and legendary singletrack this should be a race that’s on your schedule!

Brief Course Descriptions

50M:

The full north loop of the original IMTUF100 course (circa 2012-2019) except it uses Pete Creek and Bear Pete’s jawdropping summit, instead of Nethker Creek.  8000′-9000′ of climbing, mapped at 49.0 miles. 

30K:

The Legend of Bear Pete Course from 2015-2019, except a start at Pete Creek Trailhead instead of Burgdorf.  Possibly the most loved and classic mountain running loop in Western Idaho.  Big views throughout and plenty of action above 8,000′.  Begin on the French Creek road, heading south.  Climb up Nethker Creek to the south shoulder of Bear Pete Mountain and drop quickly north into Frosty Meadow for an aid station.  Continue north on the Bear Pete Trail to the top of Bear Pete Mountain, then descend Pete Creek.  Cross the creek just 100 yards before the finish line.
50K:

The 50K follows the 30K course to Frosty Meadows, before breaking off and running  south along the Bear Pete trail a few more more miles, passing Cloochman Saddle to our planned aid station at North Fork Meadows.  Turn around and climb back up over Cloochman Saddle to Frosty Meadows #2, then continuing north to the top of Bear Pete Mountain and descending Pete Creek back down to the finish.
 

Jug Mountain Ranch

Just a few miles south of downtown McCall. Besides having world class gold and a fabulous restaurant JMR is the beating heart for the mountain bike & trail running community in McCall and the surrounding area. Why? First, you have access to miles of amazing singletrack that are well maintained that is perfect for beginners and intermediates to access along with being a great launching point into the rugged, high alpine above. Second, their amazing clubhouse means you have a great place to relax after a hard day on the trail. What more could you want?
