Madison Marathon – 10th Annual

July 18, 2020┬á– A truly amazing marathon experience. ┬áThis year marks the┬á10th running of the Madison Marathon – the run with the highest starting point in the US. ┬áBut that’s just the start. ┬áThe race is exclusive – permitted by the US Forest Service, only 200 runners are allowed to participate. ┬áThen there is the scenery…amazing at every turn. ┬áWide meadows of flowers, valley vistas and in the distance the Centennial and Madison Ranges of the Rocky mountains. ┬áAnd just to keep your heart pumping, wildlife including bear, wolves, moose, deer and elk have been spotted by past runners on the trail.

This  race draws marathoners from all over the US and the world.  Sold out for the past several years, the marathon draws 50-Stater runners and Marathon Maniacs who can combine this event with the Deseret News Classic Marathon in Salt Lake City on July 24.

The Madison Marathon is the second race in the Madison Trifecta. ┬áThe first race is the Madison Duathlon on July┬á6 – a riding, running race from Ennis, Montana to Historic Virginia City, Montana . ┬áThe final race in the Trifecta is the Madison Triathlon on August 3. ┬áBegin with a 3 lap race course at Ennis Lake in open water; ride to Harrison, Montana with a 5 mile uphill and a 5 mile downhill stretch; and then run uphill to Pony, Montana. ┬áRunners who complete all ┬áthree races in one summer are given the T.B.A. award (Totally Bad Ass). ┬áThey will earn it!

We hope to see you this summer. Stay healthy, stay happy, and keep running forward.
