Big Sky Resort has been chosen as the Skyrunner World Series Ultra marathon final event for 2014 with the announcement of the 2nd annual The Rut 50 & kilometer races to be held September 13th, 2014 & The Lone Peak Vertical Kilometer race added for September 12th, 2014. Registration opens online this coming Sunday, January 5th. Debuting last summer, The Rut sold out in both the 50K & 12K races. The Rut 50K, a 10,000 foot gain in elevation, tests runners with off-trail exposed ridgelines, forested single-track trails, rugged jeep roads & the lofty summit of an iconic Lone Peak. The RutK will gain 2100 vertical feet & NEW this year, The Lone Peak Vertical Kilometer, a 2.4 mile race with a vertical gain of 3280 feet up Lone Peak.I'm getting dizzy just blogging about these high spirited high altitude events. Beginning this coming Sunday, you can register at: Visit for more information.
