COURSE

5km course: out and back (primarily on a private dirt road). Your turnaround will be approximately three-quarters of the way up Middle Cottonwood Road--you will turn at the sign. Volunteer course worker will be posted at the turnaround.

10-mile course: The iconic JBTR course features a scenic loop starting near 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.

Aid stations will be at the Middle Cottonwood Trailhead and the high point of the trail on Sypes. Both will have water and SaltSkick sports drink.

10-MILE COURSE: 2,838 ft. of elevation gain. View PDF

PARKING

Our permit from the Forest Service requires NO PARKING AT THE TRAILHEAD or along Sypes Canyon Road. This applies to racers, spectators, and volunteers. You have two options to get to the race:

1) Get dropped off at the start/finish area at the top of Sypes Canyon Road (again, no parking here)

2) Park at the Springhill Sod Farm (corner of Springhill Rd and Sypes Canyon Rd) and take a shuttle (a BSF sprinter van).

Thank you for helping us keep our permit and a good relationship with the Sypes Canyon neighborhood!

POST-RACE BBQ

Stick around after your race for a post-race BBQ, raffles, awards, and beer from Montucky Cold Snacks.

Spectators can purchase a BBQ ticket for $10.

ABOUT THE BSF PRO TEAM

Proceeds from this event support the nonprofit Bridger Ski Foundation's Nordic Pro Team. Coached by four-time Olympian Andy Newell, this community-supported Olympic development team gives some of the top skiers in the country the support to pursue a professional ski career. This past year, four Pro Team athletes qualified for World Cup races and several ranked at or near the top of the domestic Super Tour standings. One was names to the U.S. Ski Team for next season. Olympic athletes in the U.S. do not receive funding from the government in the way that athletes from Germany, Norway, Sweden, and other countries do. Thus, a few select ski clubs in the states play a crucial role in developing and supporting both up-and-coming and established skiers. The BSF Pro Team is self- funded and depends on the support of sponsors, BSF, and the larger community.
