Activities: Trail race, Full Marathon (26.2 Mi)

Join us for our 4th year of our point-to-point mountain marathon on the newest Foy's to Blacktail Trail system!  

Remember to bring your bear spray. All racers must race with it because there is a real risk of running into wildlife such as bears and/or mountain lions that feel threatened and get aggressive. Even those at the back of the back need to be aware of startling any of these charismatic megafauna.

This race, along with the Herron Half Marathon, 10k, & 5k trail races, are our longest-running annual fundraisers. The money raised from the races goes directly to building and maintaining trails in the 34-mile FTBT system, including new trails on Emmons Ridge south to Blacktail Mountain. In addition to event fees, our trails thrive largely in part to our dedicated sponsors. FTBT would like to recognize the following sponsors for their financial contributions in 2021 and many years prior:

Step Ahead Foot & Ankle Clinic
