October 2-3, 2021 - Whitefish Legacy Partners is excited to host a weekend of running events on the Whitefish Trail!
**Note the 2021 Great Northwest Oktoberfest has been cancelled. The 50k is still ON, and we will have an abbreviated awards ceremony and limited post-race celebration.
Saturday's 50k Mountain Ultra, presented by Whitefish Credit Union, will start in Depot Park in downtown Whitefish, climb to the summit of Big Mountain via the Whitefish Trail in Haskill, and finish back at Depot Park in downtown Whitefish! We will cap registration at 200 runners for the 50k Mountain Ultra. Our 2021-2025 50K Forest Service permit has been approved. Registration for 50k will close at 11:59pm on Friday October 1st- there will be no day-of registration.
Sunday's Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and family-fun run, presented by Whitefish Therapy and Sport Center, will explore the Whitefish Trail in Beaver Lakes, starting and ending at the Whitefish Bike Retreat. The event is also made possible by event sponsor Hammer Nutrition. We will cap each race registration to adhere to social distancing guidelines. The current registration caps are as follows:
Half Marathon = 200 runners
10k+ = 125 runners
5k+ = 90 runners
Family Fun Run = 35 runners
Registration for half marathon, 10k, 5k & fun run will close at 11:59pm on Saturday October 2nd- there will be no day-of registration.
The COVID19 pandemic has caused us to develop an implementation plan to help decrease the spread of the virus for race participants, volunteers, and the community of Whitefish, MT. We will take steps to reduce crowding and congestion, and the proposed health plan for the event will be reviewed and approved by Flathead County Health Department in hopes of ensuring the health and safety of participants and volunteers. As the situation continues to improve, WLP reserves the right to alter these guidelines.
Covid-19 Cancellation/Refund Policy: In the event that Whitefish Legacy Partners cancels the Legacy Run due to the Covid-19 pandemic, registered runners will have the option to receive either 50% refund or registration deferment to 2022.
Some changes to the race that we are considering in order to reduce congestion and crowding at the start/finish, at aid-stations, and on the trail:
Additional guidelines and/or protocols may be added prior to race day. We will communicate via email and on our Facebook page.
If anyone has any COVID19 related symptoms please stay home: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea
Pre and Post Race – Whitefish, MT
All visitors and spectators (including runners, crew, runner family and friends) should wear face coverings and maintain social distancing while in public places in Whitefish, MT.
All spectators and runners must wear face covering at the start lines. Race start times may be changed in order to spread out runners on the course. Final start times will be communicated to runners via email and at packet pick up.
On the Trail
NOTE ON FACE COVERINGS: buff/neck gaiter-like coverings would be ideal for runners during the race because when not being used, they can hang around necks or around wrists for easy access. Face coverings do not need to be medical type coverings; cloth ones are recommended for runners.
From the CDC: “CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations.”
