The Bitterroot Runoff Trail Runs are held on beautiful single track trails in the hills above Lolo, MT. There are two options – a 9.7 mile course and 5.2 mile course with a scrumptious post-race brunch at the finish line for racers. Come join us to kick off the beginning of trail running season in Montana!

This event is the first race in the 2019 Runner’s Edge Trail Race Series.

New For 2019!
After filling up in 2018 we are excited to be able to offer more openings in the Bitterroot Runoff. There are now 700 total spots available between the 5 mile and the 10 mile.

Please be aware that the 5 mile starts 20 minutes before the 10 mile. There are two self-selected waves in the 10 mile to help with trail congestion. You don’t need to register for a specific wave!

The post-race meal is a brunch worthy of Paul Bunyan to accommodate the earlier finish times.


This event is located on a private trail network just west of Lolo, MT.
