RaceMT's Great Falls Trail Series....

The Race MT "trail series" was put together 4 years ago. Since the series inception we have had fun keeping you guessing. Every year we change, alter or adjust the courses to keep you challenged. These courses are scenic, technical and versatile, with fantastic views! Big change for this year is there will be no point chasing, just having fun! There are still awesome, cool and unique prizes.

RACE DAY REGISTRATION ONLY. $30 per solo runner or $15 per team participant. If you registered online and had problems please contact Kristina Smith racemtkristina@outlook.com or 406-868-7914.

The Squirrel Rampage will be held in conjunction with the Missouri River Rampage mountain bike races and Expo! This should be an exciting weekend. You can chose to run the race solo or as a team. Either way you will get to preview sections of the mountain bike race that will be taking place the following day. Of course, you're more than welcome to do both of the events. The course is a punishing up, down and rolling single track trail with technical sections of root and rocks. You will be enjoying sections of Mayhem and Chaos before grinding back up to the spectators or finish depending if you're racing solo or individual. Each loop is 5 miles. 20 miles for the solo runner. Teams can run 1 or 2 legs, meaning teams can consist of 4 or two individuals. The trail head for event is just past Giant Springs Park, beyond the railroad trestle, and both overlooks. http://thetrail.org/sites/default/files/maps/Final%20RETmap%20%20Res.%204-22.pdf
