Aptly named for the rugged men who explored this area starting in the 1860s, the Prosepctor is a brand new race for 2023! The views are as good as the gold they were looking for. If you can pull your eyes away from the surrounding mountain views, you’ll run by big and small reminders of the mining activity including homesteads, mine equipment, and endless spur roads.

The 50k course will start in Silver Gate and finish in Cooke City following access roads and trails and gaining approximately 5,500ft. The 30k course follows the majority of the 50k course.
