Foothills 16K Race Day

This is a 16-kilometer point-to-point style trail run. Participants will run a 0.5-mile section of Sypes Canyon Rd at the start before running the Foothills trail for the rest of the race to the M parking lot where they will enter onto the M connector trail and cross the finish line at Story Mill Park.  If you're going for speed, get ahead on this short road section before the bottleneck on the single track. The course is primarily moderately technical single track with rolling climbs through pine forests, open meadows and sweeping views of the Gallatin Valley and mountain ranges beyond. The course climbs a total of 2,020 feet and reaches a maximum elevation of 6,732 feet.
