Don't Fence Me In Trail Run

Each May, Montana’s trail running season kicks off with Helena’s Don’t Fence Me In Trail Run. What started off as a small gathering aimed at generating support and excitement for local open space is now a major community event celebrating our local wild lands and our connection to them. And what better way to celebrate the outdoors than wandering the switchbacks and rough terrain with your fellow outdoor enthusiasts! Everyone is encouraged to run with us on the nationally renowned South Hills trail system, whether pushing through the 30K dash over two peaks, celebrating the 20th annual trail run with the new 20K, scrambling through hills and trees with the 5K or 12K races, or taking time to sniff the wild roses in the non-competitive 5K Dog Walk. The 20th Annual Don’t Fence Me In Trail Run is set for Saturday, May 9, 2020.

30K – $80    |   20K – $65   |   12K – $50    |   5K – $30    |    5K Dog Walk – $35

As always, kids 17 and under register for free!

Montana Enduro Series

The Montana Enduro Series is the brainchild of the Montana Bicycle Guild. The whole thing grew from a conversation on a cold night in November, 2013, in Helena, Montana. We realized that we wanted to see an enduro series in our part of the world and that nobody was doing it. After that conversation and a couple phone calls, there was a team that consisted of a geologist, a bike shop owner, a physical therapist, a couple lawyers, a marketing guy, a plumber, and some engineers.

Held in Helena May 24, 2020
