The Rut 2016 is a series of mountain races hosted by Big Sky Resort, the International SkyRunning Federation, and Salomon. These world-class races will take place on the slopes of Big Sky Resort's Lone Mountain during the weekend of September 2 to 4, 2016.

Come to Big Sky over Labor Day weekend to watch top athletes from around the world hit the dirt, scramble up scree slopes, scoot over exposed terrain, sprint down steep single track trails, cover some serious vertical and distance, and race across the finish line. As part of the 2016 Skyrunner World Series, this is going to be an impressive and grueling event.

If you're a trail runner, hopefully you've already signed up to reserve your spot in the race. Spots are limited and you need to register very early if you want to race in this prestigious event. If you want to watch some of the world's best trail runners in action stop by Big Sky for The Rut 2016 - no reservations required.
All of these races are the real deal. If you haven't watched The Rut Race in past years, you need to visit Big Sky and check it out. If you've been to The Rut in previous years, you already know why you need to come back to see this event again.
