2020 Herd Relays Cancelled

In light of the COVID-19 crisis, we have made the hard decision to cancel the 2020 Herd Relays. Though we very much hope that events are able to be held as planned in July, we feel the time is not right to launch a first-year event. We will be offering a refund option to all of our currently registered participants. Though we would love nothing more than to have the race this year, please know that we are already excited to host the Herd Relays in July of 2021 at Big Sky Resort. Please keep the event on your radar for next year!

Thank you so much for your support,

~RE Events Team






The Herd Relays were founded on the ideas:

+ that trail running is better with friends
+ that a journey shared is a richer experience
+ that overcoming challenges together bring us closer to one another
+ and that a goal achieved by teamwork is more rewarding

If you agree, please join us in beautiful Big Sky, Montana this July for your most fun race of the year!

The Herd Courses

Three courses following the beautiful singletrack trails and dirt roads of Big Sky Resort, each with their own character. Teams of 3 or 6 will complete all 3 loops 4 times each – for a total of 12 legs. All courses begin and end in the Big Sky Base Area where the Herd festivities will be cranking all day long. The courses must be run in the correct order and each runner from your team must run a minimum of one leg.
