BIGHORN TRAIL 100
Entrants are not required to meet qualification standards to enter the event. However,
to ensure a sufficiently experienced and trained field of participants, each runner should be
aware of the extremely rugged terrain and difficulty this course presents.
This will increase the likelihood that the participants will be prepared to deal with a rugged course and unpredictable
mountain weather to safely participate in the event.
The Bighorn Trail 100 Mile Run is an arduous trail run that will take place in the Little Bighorn – Tongue River areas of the Bighorn National Forest.
Starting time for the event will be on Friday at 11 AM with a 34 hour (average pace of 2.94 mph) time limit to finish the event.
Runners must be prepared for potential extreme temperature variation and weather conditions during the event with
possible temperatures exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the day in the canyons and being well below freezing at night
in the mountains. The course is wild and scenic traversing territory inhabited by elk, deer, moose, bears, cougars,
mountain lions, and rattlesnakes with the potential for wildlife encounters with runners. Crew access points on parts
of the course are limited and the runner should be prepared to participate with a fanny pack and other necessary equipment to ensure
their ability to safely traverse difficult remote mountainous trails in potentially unpredictable weather conditions.
The course is an out-and-back consisting of 76 miles of single track trail, 16 miles of rugged double track jeep trail,
and 8 miles of gravel road with approximately 17,500 feet of climb and 18,000 feet of descent.
The Bighorn 100 Trail Run Race Directors reserve the right to refuse any runner they feel cannot safely participate in this event.
In all cases regarding application for entry, the judgement of the Race Directors of the Bighorn Trail 100 shall be final.
