_ The 2020 Foothills 16K:
Welcome to the Foothills 16K
This is a 16-kilometer point-to-point style trail run. Runners will ride the mandatory shuttle from town to the start line in Sypes Canyon. Participants will run a 0.5-mile section of Sypes Canyon Rd at the start before running the Foothills trail for the rest of the race to the M parking lot where they will enter onto the M connector trail. The finish line, awards, and food will be provided in the Story Mill Park. If you're going for speed, get ahead on this short road section before the bottleneck on the single track. The course is primarily moderately technical single track with rolling climbs through pine forests, open meadows and sweeping views of the Gallatin Valley and mountain ranges beyond. The course climbs a total of 2,020 feet and reaches a maximum elevation of 6,732 feet. Once you reach the bottom of the M trail, follow the connector trail back into town, ending at the newly built Story Mill Park.
The race is limited to 300 runners. Registration is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once this limit is reached, registration will be closed.
