The first part of the course was an out and back which went up and over a railroad trestle and then through a tunnel. The rest of the course was a gradual downhill along the St. Regis River. There were plenty of well-stocked aid stations spaced an average of 4 miles apart, with an opportunity to have a drop bag at about the half-way point. I wore a well-used pair of trail shoes for the first half, but switched to my more comfortable road shoes at the half-way point. At two of the aid stations, we had to take a detour into one of the small towns, which added an extra two miles to the “50K.” The 50K finishers received a custom Fruit-of-the-loom hoodie and the 50 mile finishers were given a Patagonia Houdini jacket. All finishers received a finisher’s award consisting of a railroad spike with an engraved plate commemorating the finish. There was plenty of food and free local beer at the finish which was at a city park. It is one of the few ultras in Montana that isn’t just for the advanced ultrarunners.
