The iconic JBTR course features a scenic loop starting at Sypes Canyon trailhead and continuing across private property only accessible on race day. Great climbs follow as the runners head up Middle Cottonwood after a challenging water crossing, then continue across the Bridgers and down Sypes Canyon. (Due to COVID-19 there will be no aid stations along the course this year. Please carry all the food/water you need). Water will be available at the finish.
Our permit from the Forest Service requires NO PARKING AT THE TRAILHEAD or along Sypes Canyon Road. You have two options to get to the race:
1) Get dropped off at the start/finish area. (recommended)
2) Park at the Springhill Sod Farm (corner of Springhill Rd and Sypes Canyon Rd) and take the shuttle (a BSF sprinter van). Masks are mandatory in the shuttle. Shuttles will begin running at 7:15 a.m. and depart every 10 to 15 minutes.
All racers must wear masks while in the shuttles and start / finish area. Runners can remove masks while warming up and racing. Spectators are not permitted in the start / finish area. All participants and spectators must follow physical distancing guidelines.
Awards for the top finishers and age group categories. Plus raffle prizes! Timing by Muddy Dog Sports.
