Moonlight on Mt. Ascension
This is the only event of its kind in Montana, brought to you by the Helena Ultra Runners League (HURL). The course is a modified figure 8 loop on Helena’s South Hills trails (Mount Ascension and Rodney Ridge areas). Each figure 8 is 100% singletrack, 11.57 miles, and 2,645 feet of elevation gain per figure 8. You’ve got 12 hours to cover as many loops as possible. The event will start at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 19, and end at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 20. Run all night, sleep all day!
Local time: 9:15 AM
Even though this event takes place just outside the City of Helena, this is Montana so do not assume that you won’t run into wildlife. Deer, black bear, and mountain lion have been seen along these trails. Also, being Montana trails, there are plenty of rocks out there...no sleep running!. It’s a HURL event, we can’t make it easy on you!
