This spectacular terrain will journey runners through an adventure of forested single & double track with an 8000 foot backdrop of the stunning Moose Mountain, the highest peak in this mountain range.

Lewiston Ultra Events is beyond honored to continue the traditions of Moose Mountain Trail Races (established in 1992) and host an exceptional run experience and give back to Love for Lewiston & community.

THE INSPIRATION

Moose Mountain Trail Races, hosted by Lewiston Ultra Events is inspired by Lewiston James Olstad and community. Lewiston reminded us to squeeze a little harder, love a little longer and savor the moments we tend to wish away. Lewiston was small and mighty and encouraged community to rise up, persevere and run towards the roar.

Moose Mountain Trail Races gives back to Love For Lewiston, Greater Bragg Creek Trail Association, Moose Mountain Bike Trail Society, Foothills Search & Rescue & several other community/volunteer organizations and shareholders.
