Not the usual run/bike/swim combo, Bozeman’s [b]Tour de Hyalite[/b] features a 15-mile round-trip trail run to Hyalite Peak, followed by rock climbing at Hyalite’s Practice Rock. The run starts at 9 am. A few hours later, take points off your time by climbing Practice Rock. Topropes will be set up on routes ranging from 5.4 to 5.12d, with more points allotted to harder routes. You get three attempts to climb each route. Although the Tour may seem intense, it’s actually fairly chill—most people do it for fun, not to win. Bring your rock shoes and harness, and compete on your own or with a team. A free party (with prizes!) follows the race. Pre-register for $25 (preferred) at Barrel Mountaineering or Northern Lights or pay $30 on race day, September 30. For more info, contact Tom Kalakay at 587-4605 or [email protected].



If 15 miles isn’t long enough for you, the [b]Lewis and Clark Marathon[/b] course is 26.2 miles but varied enough to keep things fresh. You start on Jackson Creek Road north of I-90 and run toward the Bridger Range, where you’ll encounter killer views and no-nonsense hills. The halfway point is a campsite on Kelly Canyon Road where Clark stayed in 1806. From there, you’ll head toward Bozeman to finish Olympic-style on the MSU track. Expect a mix of pavement, gravel, and single-track trail but don’t bet on a PR. If you’ve put some miles on your running shoes this summer, enjoy a uniquely Bozeman running experience on September 24. The marathon costs $40, and there’s also a half marathon ($30), a 5k walk/run ($12), and a kids’ run ($4). For details contact Fleet Feet Sports at 587-1135 or [email protected].
