Snowbowl 15K | Cancelled for 2020

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the recent rise of cases in our area, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Snowbowl 15k.

The health & safety of our participants will always be our top priority.  We believe that cancellation is the most responsible choice for an event of this size during a time when Montana is seeing a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and we hope to see you in 2021.

Course Description:

The beautiful loop course will start and finish in the Snowbowl base area. The 9.3 mile course will climb for 4.65 miles on a mixture of dirt and double track roads. You will reach the top of the climb, and the only aid station on the course, at the top of Grizzly Chair. From there you will enjoy a beautiful 4.65 mile descent down the popular stretch of single track in the ski area, known as Beargrass Highway. This trail will bring you all the way back to the base area and finish line. There is 2,150 ft of climbing in the race and 2,150 ft of flowy single track descending.

Aid Stations

There will be one aid station located at mile 4.6, the highpoint of the course.

Aid Stations will Provide:

  • Water
  • Electrolyte drink
  • Energy gels
  • Snacks

Runner’s Edge Events are cupless races.  For more information, click here.

Location:

The Snowbowl 15k takes place at the Montana Snowbowl! The start/finish line is right next to the lodge.

Make a Day of it!

Bring the whole family for the race and stay for the zipline and huckleberries! All summer long the Montana Snowbowl operates zipline tours that criss-cross the resort. Now you can take a post-race ride and enjoy a birds eye view of terrain you covered by foot. Plus you’ll have more chances to pick huckleberries than you did while hurtling down the Beargrass Highway!
