It’s the 15th anniversary of your favorite Trail Run!

Don't Fence Me In Trail Run LogoJoin us on May 9, 2015, for the 15th anniversary of Helena’s favorite trail run! This event boasts a 30k, 12k, 5k and 5k dog walk. All events start and end in downtown Helena, but thanks to our trail system being so nearby, all courses are mostly on trails. In addition to being a great event, Don’t Fence Me In is a big fundraiser for Prickly Pear Land Trust, who maintains and expands the trail system on which the race is run. Costs are:

  • 30k – $55
  • 12k – $30
  • 5k – $30
  • 5k dog walk – $30 plus $5 per dog

Help us celebrate DFMI’s 15th anniversary! We strongly encourage you to solicit donations on behalf of the land trust because the trails and open space you’ll run on are maintained by Prickly Pear Land Trust. Please “go the extra mile” and solicit support from your family and friends. See our pledges page for information. A PPLT hoodie will be given for raising $100. If you raise $500 or more, a custom softshell jacket emblazoned with the Don’t Fence Me In logo will be yours to cherish. Raise at least $100 from 10 or more sponsors, and you’ll get a 10-beer punch card from Blackfoot River Brewing in addition to a jacket or hoodie, if you earn one. Most importantly you’ll be supporting Prickly Pear Land Trust. We’re taking the lead in connecting land and people. Now go hit up your friends for the trails you love! The fine print: Pledges must be collected and turned in to PPLT before you run. Please collect names and current address of pledgers so we can send them a tax deduction letter. We’re happy to do whatever we can to make pledge getting easy. Call us if you’d like any support, like logos or letterhead and whatnot. Thank you SO MUCH for your efforts!
