Gallatin Valley Earth Day Run - Saturday April 22 at 9am


The 2023 Earth Day Run will benefit the Sacajawea Audubon Society’s Indreland Audubon Wetlands Preserve.  We will be raising funds to support the 2023 BioBlitz campaign to train local volunteers.  They will learn how macroinvertebrates, plants and wildlife are indicators of wetland health, and how to identify them.  They will then gather data to create an Ecological Snapshot of the wetland, in support of conservation activities!

  • Place: West Oak Street and North Yellowstone Avenue
    Bozeman, MT US 59718
  • Prize Drawings: All race participants will be entered into a prize drawing.  Prize winners will be drawn prior to the race, and racers will need to stop by the prize table in the finish area to see if they've won something.  We will be looking to provide prizes related to the Earth Day themes of sustainability or renewable energy, or related to the race theme of "wildlife!"
  • Awards: We will be awarding Uphill Pursuits gift cards to the Top 3 Overall men's and women's finishers!
