Don't Fence Me In Trail Run

Saturday, May 10, 2025

Kick off the trail running season with this iconic race in the heart of Downtown Helena!

Funds raised from this race support the South Hills Trails and open lands! It’s all about celebrating our love of the outdoors and running wild.


Your sponsorship goes far beyond PPLT events and extends throughout the year, serving 1,000s in our community—from our daily South Hills Trail hikers and bikers, to little ones and those with mobility obstacles who now access the outdoors at PPLT’s Tenmile Creek Park.
