11 years of Celebration!
Supporting trails in the Mission Mountains Wilderness and the Swan Front.
The sponsors for this year's race are noted below as they appear on the race shirts. Four of these businesses have sponsored the race all eleven years. They are Clearwater Montana Properties, Hungry Bear Steak House, Photographers' Formulary, and Swan River Valley Real Estate.
We are honored by their continued support and for the support of all
the businesses and organizations noted below. Please mention that you
appreciate their endorsement of the Swan Ecosystem Center's trail
One hundred and fifteen runners and 14 bicyclists participated in our Celebrate the Swan races to support Swan Ecosystem Center's Trail Stewards for the Mission Mountains Wilderness and the Swan Front. Simple Delights Concession provided made from scratch meals from their food van. The band Cash for Junkers played for dancers under the blazing sun at the American Legion Ball Park.
Dozens of Swan Valley residents volunteered to help Swan Ecosystem Center give local athletes and out of towners a first class racing experience. We had returnees who have run all eleven years of our existence. Some racers came from as far away as Tennessee and Michigan.
Our special thanks to the people who chose to race here and to our wonderful sponsors, without whom, this race would not be possible.
