Ranch Run – September 17, 2016

The 2nd Annual Ranch Run, sponsored by the Montana CattleWomen, will again be held in beautiful Lennep, Montana. The race will go “on the road” in future years to showcase different landscapes and forms of agriculture…but 2016 will again take place in the heart of the Castle Mountains.

Save the date for September 17 and start forming your teams of up to 5 people. We will try to accommodate runners on a “per runner” price, so that teams of two will not have to pay the same as a team of 5 (we’re working on the logistics).

Check out to get YOUR team registered. The registration fee will increase in July…so organize a team of all your favorite runner friends and get ready for some fun!!

More details to come, but thought you would all want to know that the race is ON! Here’s to a great 2016 race season!

Come enjoy this 25 mile relay run through what we consider the best place on earth!
