A holiday tradition! Come out in the beautiful, frosty winter-time surroundings along the Gallagator Trail and enjoy some festive running, and treat-sharing! We encourage runners to help us live up to the name of this fun run. Let’s make a cheery racket! Bring or wear your bells: jingle bells, cow bells, school bells, bear bells, hand bells, bicycle bells, service bells, crotal bells, chimes… anything that rings in good cheer! Let’s see how many smiles we can create out there! (We’ll have a few sets of bells you can borrow, if you don’t have any)
We will have Short, Medium, and Long courses (1, 2,8, and 4.2 mile routes). All options will be on the Gallagator Trail and connecting trails and sidewalks.
Course maps (NOTE: the routes have changed slightly from last year, due to deep snow!):
9:00 AM start at the Gallatin Valley Land Trust (GVLT) outdoor patio at 212 S. Wallace Ave. Park on Wallace or in the western side of Bozeman Public Library parking lot. There is a walkway between the library parking lot and the patio. Look for Wind Drinkers signs!
After the run, join in the Cookie Exchange! Bring along a plate of cookies to share, and swap with others!
Bathrooms will be available, if needed, inside the building.
