The Glacier Nordic Club will hold its 35th annual Big Mountain Run on Saturday, Aug. 5 at 10 a.m.
The race starts at the Danny On Trailhead at Whitefish Mountain Resort and ends at the summit — a 3.8 mile course. Runners will compete for the titles of King and Queen and Prince and Princess of the Mountain. Dogs, with a runner, will compete for the “Top” Dog. Hikers are welcomed. All runners finishing the course in a time less than their age (women — age plus 10 minutes) qualify for the Birthday Club and receive a cupcake.
All registered runners (except dogs) receive a free chair lift ride back to the base. The cost is $15 per individual, $40 per family, $10 juniors (16 and under).
