Jimmy Grant sprinted to the top of Big Mountain at Saturday’s 35th annual Big Mountain Run.

Grant clocked a 36:01 time on the route up the Danny On trail to earn King of the Mountain status.

Finishing in under an hour was Vonda Garcia who earned Queen of the Mountain status. She clocked a time of 48:21.

Jacob Bailey, 15, ran the course in 41:40 to earn Prince of the Mountain. Madelaine Jellison, 12, claimed Princess of the Mountain with a time of 51:54.

The Danny On climbs more than 2,000 vertical feet over 3.8 miles.

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 at the top of the mountain. This year 13 runners earned a spot in the Birthday Club.

Mike Muldown, 72, who has completed the run for 33 of the 35 years, was one of those to make the Birthday Club.

The proceeds benefit the nonprofit Glacier Nordic Ski Team which serves over 200 youth each winter. For more information visit glaciernordicclub.com.
