Red Lodge Mountain

This off-road marathon will be held at Red Lodge Mountain Resort. In its fourth year running, the Nitty Gritty is starting to earn quite the reputation.  And that is, that its, one nitty, gritty marathon with LOTS of climbing all on dirt roads and single track trails.

With a September date, your summer of running and racing will be what prepares you for this “battle royal” event.  Form a six, three or two runner relay team to tackle the marathon, or if you have the grit, try the solo hot lap, half, or full marathon!

The Nitty Gritty is a tough race with a the flair of a festival. Through out the race there will be themed water tables full of fun.After your run, you can relax at home base on the sunny deck of the BeirStube while you enjoy music, food and drinks, and good company.

So gather up your team, because its time to get down to The Nitty Gritty!
