Every continent except Antarctica has a continental divide. In North America the divide runs from northwestern Canada along the crest of the Rocky Mountains to Mexico’s Sierra Madre Occidental, and it is generally the line that divides the flow of water between the Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean.
In 1968 a federal plan for the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) was mandated, and today, construction of the CDT is estimated to be 85% complete.
Fourteen Butte-iful kilometers along the CDT between Montana’s Homestake and Pipestone passes in Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest are complete. They provide scenic vistas with majestic rock formations. This race along that route celebrates the trail and the memory of one of its greatest local proponents — the late John “the Wulfman” Wulf, who was the Godfather of Butte’s Piss & Moan Runners. The race is run on Summer Solstice Saturday, the anniversary of the Wulfman’s final run with his Piss and Moan comrades.
Race proceeds are donated to help build, maintain, and improve trails in southwest Montana and to support local youth runners. As of 12/31/2019 we have contributed $12,606 for trail related projects, $1600 for local emergency, search, and rescue, and $5000 for youth running programs.
We Piss & Moan Runners promise our best in creating a race experience that is challenging, memorable, and fun for runners of all ages and abilities!!
