Due to the unforeseen construction that will be happening on the Main Boulder Road this summer, we believe that it is in the best interest of safety and hosting an enjoyable event, we will need to postpone Back From the Bridges until July 2018. We are disappointed, but we know these major road improvements will make for a great run next year.
"Back from the Bridges"
We want every child to experience a week of youth camp at Clydehurst, so we never turn anyone away because of their inability to afford camp.
Join us to run or walk to raise scholarship money for kids who cannot afford to come to youth camp!
Back From the Bridges is one of the most beautiful and unique running events in Montana. Enjoy the incredible scenery of the Boulder Valley as you follow a gravel road course that lies adjacent to the Boulder River. Check out the course prior to the race as we bus you from CCR to the starting lines, two historic points along the river – Natural Bridge (12.2k) and 2-mile Bridge (3.7k). Refreshments and entertainment will be provided by the Clydehurst staff throughout the course, and at the end of the race you will receive your very own race medal, t-shirt and goody bag. Timing chips let your family and friends get instant race results online. Stay after the race for a free lunch and the chance to win great prizes and giveaways!!
Kids Mile Adventure Run
We need your help! Otto the Boose, our resident beaver-moose hybrid has lost his way and we need to find him fast. He can't be out of the water or his lips get really chappled! You will have a navigate a pool noodle car wash, blow-up obstacles and slides, a pirate water balloon battle, and many other exciting adventures along the 1-mile course. You'll even need to smash a camp cook in the face with a pie! If you can finish this adventure, you'll receive a special medal to thank you for your bravery. There will be camp counselors cheering you on along the course and your parents are welcome to run along with you...if they can keep up!
