Whitefish Trail Run & Half Marathon
October 9, 2016 - 10:00 am
This family friendly run offers something for everyone…long distances on single track trails and shorter options for families.
The Whitefish Trail Run and Half Marathon takes place in Beaver Lakes of the Whitefish Trail. This year, we are excited to offer NEW courses! A half marathon will explore brand new single-track surrounding Dollar and Little Beaver Lakes, the 10K+ will loop Murray Lake, the 5k+ will circle the South Beaver Loop, and a two mile family fun run will meander through mature forest. The half marathon and the 5K are run 100% on single-track, while the 10K and family fun run will have some small sections of dirt road.
The 2016 Whitefish Trail Run and Half Marathon is sponsored by Title Sponsor Whitefish Therapy & Sport Center and event sponsor Step Ahead Foot & Ankle Clinic and will be hosted at the Whitefish Bike Retreat, a beautiful facility set on 19 acres, offering trailside lodging. Family and friends can gather at the Whitefish Bike Retreat to celebrate with a post-race lunch, local craft beer, and award ceremony.

Aid Stations & Course Guides:
Portable restrooms will be available at the Whitefish Bike Retreat. Aid Stations will be supplied with water from Petty Johns Water Supply and HEED from Hammer Nutrition. The course will be marked with color coded signs and volunteers will be at all trail intersections to cheer you on and make sure you stay on course. If you stop before finishing the race, you need to check in with a volunteer or Legacy Race official before leaving the course. Otherwise, our volunteers will waste unnecessary time looking for you!
Volunteers are critical to holding an efficient, safe event and volunteers have fun! We need 30+ people to layout the courses, register participants on Sunday morning, provide on-course runner directions, offer aid station support, be a course sweeper, and serve food and drinks at the celebration. All volunteers need to sign up ahead of time and we need volunteers both Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
1st through 3rd place awards will be given in each age category, in both men’s and women’s divisions. We will also award the top male and female finisher for each race with a special gift.
