What day is the Montana Marathon?

Sunday, September 17, 2017.

I've changed my mind/been injured/decided to climb a mountain. Can I get a refund?

The Marathon is not able to give refunds, but you are able to roll over your registration for the next year.  Rollover requests will not be considered AFTER race date.  Rollovers will be given a code for 80% of the registration amount.

Is there a cut-off time where course will be closed?

Yes- the course will be closed at 1:00pm and anyone left on course will be picked up and driven in.  If you can't finish by 1:00, please take the early start.

Can anyone take the early start?

No- If you are able to finish before 1:00, you cannot take the early start.  The 5:00am start is only for those who are walking or running at a slower pace. 

I am flying in from out-of-town, do a need to rent a car?

Not necessarily. There is a shuttle from the airport to our partner hotel. There is a shuttle from the hotel to the bus pick up for the race. Busses take runners to the race start. Shuttles will get you back to the hotel and the airport. Downtown Billings is walker friendly and has many great eating establishments.

I signed up for the full, but want to switch to the half.

You can switch races at packet pickup.  Also can be done on runsignup.com (most effecient). Or email timeoutsports@bresnan.net

Is the early start (5am) only for walkers?

No.  The early start is REQUIRED for walkers and any runner who cannot finish by 1:00pm.  All early starters are required to have a light on them.  It is very dark at the start, and runner's safety is always priority #1.

I am running the half and do not want to take the bus, can I drive out to the half start or get dropped off?

You should take the bus- keep the course clear and safe for all participants, the race is not on a closed course.  Let's be courteous to everyone out there and have a good time!
