Overview

For the 100K, the race starts at Bannock Pass. The course from the start to mile 49 is on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT). The CDT is on or very near the Continental Divide from the start to mile 49. The length of Continental Divide covered in this event also represents the boarder between Idaho and Montana. At mile 49, runners will leave the official CDT for the remainder of the course, but will continue along the true Continental Divide border for another 5 miles (mile 54). FYI, at mile 49 the CDT dips into Montana then turns parallel to the Continental Divide in-order to divert away from a section of hard to navigate terrain consisting of high mountains, skree, and cliffs. You will drop off the Continental Divide at mile 54 and descend into the head waters of Bohannon Creek and onto the finish line.

For the 55k, the race starts at Lemhi Pass. The course from the start to mile 18 is on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT). The CDT is on or very near the Continental Divide from the start to mile 18. The length of Continental Divide covered in this event also represents the boarder between Idaho and Montana. At mile 18, runners will leave the official CDT for the remainder of the course, but will continue along the true Continental Divide boarder for another 5 miles (mile 23).
