The Rut 2019 – Big Sky

August 30 @ 11:00 am - September 1 @ 8:00 pm

Best Trail Running Races in the US Big Sky Montana Loose Rock Summer Tough Run

The Rut 2019 is part of the best trail running series in the US. The sound of an Elk bugle booming over the large crowd of racers signals the beginning of what many consider the TOUGHEST trail race in North America. The RUT!

What To Expect At The Rut 2019

With nearly 20,000 vertical feet of climb over high alpine terrain, it’s covered in loose rocks and consistent rockfall danger at every step! If the 50K seems a bit too much, you can attempt the “small” vertical climb starting at the base of Big Sky. From the village, it sends camo and blaze orange colored competitors up 3,466 vertical feet covering three miles to the top of Lone Peak. Once you’re done, don’t forget to check out the one-of-a-kind first place trophy made from elk hide!
