Howdy folks!  The WOLF RUN SERIES (formerly the Bull Run & Bike) would like to introduce our new half marathon series - the Wolf Trifecta!  This series will consist of three half marathons, one each year for the next three years.  This year (2023) we present the "Running Wolf" route, which starts in the Little Belt Mountains, close to the start of previous year's Bull Run.  This mostly downhilll course continues for 9 miles down the county gravel road, at which point it veers right, to finish at a new destination.  No more crossing the busy highway!

Next year (2024) will reveal a new course, "Dry Wolf!"  Situated in the drainage just over the mountain from Running Wolf, this mostly flat and downhill course meanders down the county gravel road for 9 miles where it turns right, finishing the last 4 miles on the same stretch as the Running Wolf route.

Then in 2025, we will feature the "Big Bad Wolf!"  This course also begins in the Little Belt Mountains on a less-maintained county road, making this course the most challenging of the three.  Although you will finish at a lower elevation than where you started, the multiple rolling hills will add inspiring elevation gains and losses along the route.

Complete all 3 races in the Wolf Trifecta and not only can you claim bragging rights of "I conquered the Wolf!," you'll also receive a commemorative race T-shirt and awesome medal to showcase your accomplishments!

Grab your friends and challenge each other!  Set a goal, schedule your training, and plan to visit beautiful Central Montana for the next 3 summers!

Individual runners and bikers are welcome to participate! 

Please note: we are discontinuing the team category for these races but are adding a 5K running race to go along with our 1-mile fun run, so you should be able to find a distance that suits you!

Proceeds from both races will benefit Basin Wellness Center, a facility in-the-making with the goal of "bringing health and wellness to Judith Basin County."  Check out our Facebook page for more information about our project!

Start time for the half marathon races is 6:30 a.m.  5K will start at 9:00 AM.  1-mile fun run will start at 10:00 AM.  Further instructions of where to meet up will be provided the week before the race.


This race comes with a T-Shirt and Swag Bag.  To guarantee these items, your registration will need to be received by June 15, 2023.


This course comprises the last 3.1 miles of the Running Wolf half marathon route.  A gradual jaunt down maintained gravel county road with plenty of scenery to boot!  Save your legs for the final push up a gradual hill to the finish!  


This will be a flat, family friendly 1 mile course. Race will begin and end along the same route as the Wolf races.  Watch your email for instructions as race day approaches! Race participants that pre-register will receive a race shirt. Those registering late or the day of the race may or may not receive a race shirt. Please watch for traffic and obey all traffic laws. Walkers are welcome but please leave your furry friends at home.


Thanks to our generous sponsors, we will have awards for 1st and 2nd place finishers in each race as well as lots of door prizes!  Drawing for door prizes will take place at the conclusion of the 1-mile fun run.


We will have a volunteer EMT on-site in case of emergencies.  Water stations will be provided throughout the half marathon route and at the finish line for both races.  No public restrooms will be provided at the half marathon race.


These races are also timed to coincide with a weekend full of events that commemorate Charlie Russell's life and work, including the CMR Stampede Rodeo, Western BBQ, Stampede Music Fest, Kids' Calf Scramble, and the Quick Finish Art & Auction, in which artists compete to finish their painting, sculpture or other artwork and then enter it in a live auction. 


HAVE FUN!!  Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and be sure to join us afterward for continued fun during CMR Stampede Weekend!
