Cross Cut trail races take place at Bridger Bowl Ski Area located in Bozeman, MT. This race takes you on a loop consisting of mostly technical, single-track trail through the heart of the Bridger Mountain Range and Cross Cut Ski Area. Race registration includes a custom race t shirt, a great after party with delicious food and drink, and a chance to win top awards and raffle prizes.
COURSES: The courses vary in terrain, but are mostly on single-track technical trail. The 15K will have approximately 2,100 feet of total elevation gain and the 25K will have approximately 3,000 feet. The majority of gain for both races is in the first 1.5 miles. Because it is a looped course, runners will have 1.5 miles of steep downhill until reaching the finish line at Jim Bridger Lodge.
AID STATIONS: There will be 3 aid stations along the 15K route and 5 aid stations along the 25K route, stocked with water, electrolyte drink, and gels. The aid stations will be approximately 3-4 miles apart with varying terrain between them. There will be no cups available at aid stations for Cross Cut. We encourage you to purchase a BRC reusable cup for just $3 to use during the race and for any other races you may sign up for. The cup is lightweight, easy to carry, dishwasher safe, and collapsible. Please plan your hydration accordingly for a hot summer day. We thank you for helping us with minimizing our footprint within these events.
POST-RACE PARTY: Cross the finish line and enjoy a free, delicious meal catered by Bridger Bowl. Meal includes a pulled pork sandwich, coleslaw, chips, and (1) beer. There will also be music, corn hole, and a chance to win a variety of raffle prizes!
AWARDS: Win custom, unique finisher awards placing in the following divisions: Top 5 Overall Male, Top 5 Overall Female, Top 3 Master’s (40+), 1 Super Master’s (70+).
