The Ridge Run is only three and a half months away! With this year’s Spring delayed a month or so and the Ridge Run course still burried in snow, you may be wondering how you should be preparing right now. Will you be ready in a few months?

Here is what Ridge Run course record holder Nikki Kimball (and only woman to have run under four hours) was doing this past weekend. She was winning a local trail race, the Big Butte Challenge. Nikki was being chased by Michele Bazzanella and Nicole Hunt who is still racing while expecting her second child.

Preparation Requires Participation

The Bridger range may not be free of snow for months, but you need to start getting in some steep rugged quality trail miles right now! There are plenty of places to run in the valleys and foothills that are free of snow. Get inspired, get outside and run! Despite the discouraging deep mountain snow pack and cool wet wintery weather you must get out and train now!
