Welcome to our thirty-second year of Race to the Sky. We have one 300 mile race and two 100 mile races for juniors and adults. Our races travel from Camp Rimini (Helena), Lincoln, Ovando, Seeley Lake for the 100 mile finish and 300 milers continue to Condon and then back to Seeley Lake for a layover before heading to the finish at Hi-Country Snack Foods near Lincoln. Events will begin Friday in Helena for 300 mile racers and Saturday in Lincoln for 100 mile racers. Join us for another exciting Race to the Sky!
