Pioneer Park, Helena
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, 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 19th Annual Don’t Fence Me In Trail Run is set for Saturday, May 11, 2019.
Avoid the Saturday morning registration lines by attending Friday’s pre-party and packet pick-up at Blackfoot River Brewing from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on May 10th. Get a rare peek behind the scenes at Blackfoot’s production facility (north of the taproom) where there’ll be live music and The Missionary Mexican food truck to accompany the release of the legendary E-trail Pale Ale. Mingle with fellow racers and pick up your race t-shirt, race bib, and packet materials. Cheers to the start of trail season!
