Sunday, September 16, 2018 • Whitefish, MT • Course Map
Timed to coincide with the peak autumn colors of the leaves and trees along the beautiful, majestic mountain peaks in northwestern Montana, the Two Bear Marathon & Half Marathon offers a high-elevation course with ample views of beautiful Whitefish.
Both the half and full marathons start at Depot Park in downtown Whitefish. From there, the half marathon course makes a loop through the area southeast of downtown, leading runners down rural roads and mountain views. This course takes place entirely on the back roads of Whitefish, with a few gently rolling hills to keep things interesting.
The full and half marathons also feature a team challenge, where the best four members of a team are scored according to their age group placement. Don’t have enough racing acquaintances? No problem; there’s also an award for the largest team.
