The final event we're proud to take part in is known as the “Ridge Run”. The Ed Anacker Bridger Ridge Run is one of the most technical trail runs in the United States. In 2012, Runner’s World Magazine named the Ridge Run one of its top 31 trail races in the country, giving it the title of “Most Raw Exposure”. In 2013, Outside Online named the Ridge Run one of its Top 10 Bucket List trail runs in the world. The Ridge Run is 19.65 miles of brutal climbing and descending, complete with unstable footing, unpredictable weather, and, of course, miles of exposure along the ridge line of the Bridger Mountain range. Needless to say, when competitors finish this incredible run, they're only too happy to soak their aching bodies in one of the many cold tubs we provide. Every year these hot tubs become the post-race hangout, with dozens of exhausted competitors able to cool down before the drive home. The run takes place every August in the Bridger Mountains near Bozeman, Montana.
