The race isn’t what I would call easy. There are some rolling hills and a large hill before you leave the mountain. The downhill will make your legs sore the next day. Once you are on the road, it is all good. It is set up where you can’t really quit. You pretty much have to run back to town! The director and crew are great. I appreciate the early start option. The people in town were supportive, so it was nice to hear the yells of support from passing cars. I will back to do this race again.

This race is definitely unique and a must do. The course is very difficult. The constant uphill climb, heat, and elevation will knock you out. You feel that much more accomplished at the end for sticking through. I will continue to do this race. Race director and team are awesome and friendly. They make an effort to get to know the runners. I also prefer smaller races where you can get to know other runners. It’s nice to see everyone on the course.

Unfortunately, I did not finish this race because I did the Madison Marathon the day before and got badly sunburned. At mile 16 of the Big Sky Marathon, my sunburn was just hurting, and when I sat down in the shade, I started shivering, so I had heat exhaustion. Sunscreen and cover are a must! There is no shade during this race. I will retry next year with better sun protection. The race was rather easy since it was downhill and then on roads. Also, the local people are very supportive. I loved running by all the cows! At least by the time I quit, I was off the mountain, so I had seen the best of the race. Ennis is also a really cool little town full of mom and pop restaurants and businesses. It’s nice to get away from commericialized places.

Difficult in a good way but so beautiful and not crowded! You can just take in all the scenes. The elevation is so high that it stays very cool even though it is summer. I only struggled with the elevation going uphill, so I just walked up the hills. You do need to be self-reliant in water and food, which is tough sometimes. But wear sunscreen! Sun is brutal! I got burned doing the race pretty badly. The shirts were disappointing. Most shirts are now made with running material but these are cotton. I won’t wear them. I will just use them for a quilt. The medals are very nice, though. I will do this race every year for sure since I live in Montana. It’s a refreshing break from running in the city.

This race was very relaxed and enjoyable. We ran by mountains and rivers, and the locals were out cheering us on and supplying us with goodies! I love the race logo and the medal and shirt are one of the best designs I have. I was a little slower on my time because I ran with my husband who is a slower runner. Otherwise, this course is actually not that hilly, so if you are aiming for a new PR, it’s a good one! My husband did his first under 5 hour marathon in this race. Even though it’s held in July, the temperature was nice and cool in the 50s. Also, it’s a great, small town with lots of good restaurants and tattoo shops.
