Yellowstone Half Marathon
The Yellowstone Half Marathon takes place in the town of West Yellowstone, MT, just outside the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. It’s a stunning course with breathtaking views of the Gallatin National Forest, huge gulps of crisp fresh air, and maybe even some wildlife.
The race starts at 7 AM sharp with cutoff at 11 AM. That provides runners (and even walkers) 4 full hours to take in the scenery and make your way to the finish line.
To be clear, this race doesn’t take place inside the National Park. (It’s difficult to get permission to conduct private business activities on national land, and rightly so.) Having said that, this is as close to the park as it gets.
