The Pronghorn Pursuit, exclusively off-pavement, meanders through the gorgeous sagebrush hills of the High Trails System, with spectacular views of the Beaverhead River Valley below. The 15k course is very challenging and will put your summer fitness to the test with 90% singletrack and 2400’ of climbing. The course is a great mix of steep climbs and technical descents interspersed with sections of fast, flowing singletrack. The 5K course offers a similar technical mix and the same great views, but at a more manageable scale for many runners. You can still expect to be challenged by this course, with some steeper sections climbing over 500’, but can look forward to the last kilometer being all downhill and smiles.
Early Race Packet pick-up will be the day before the race from 3pm to 6pm. This will be located at the Patagonia outlet store and please feel free show up early to shop!
Race Day registration starts at 7am 15k starts at 8am 5k starts at 8:45am
