Course Description


A 1000 yard (20 laps) in the MSU pool. We will have one 40 minute heat. All other heats will be 30 minutes or less. Swim counters will be monitor your swim pace.

If you cannot finish your heat in the allotted time you will be pulled from the swim. You will be allowed to finish the race but will not be eligible for awards.


A 20K completely paved out and back on Kagy and Bozeman Trail Road. Expect a few steep climbs and a couple fast downhills.
Pump those tires up to 130 psi!


A 5K designed to be fun and promote engagement with the MSU students. The run course leaves campus and hits up the local the Gallagator trail, a crushed stone surface for the vast majority of its route, before making its way back to campus.
Keep an eye out for the Bobcat!
