4th Annual Pronghorn Pursuit Trail Race Beaverhead Trails Coalition (BTC) teamed up with the Beaverhead County High School (BCHS) Cross Country team in 2019 to bring the first Pronghorn Pursuit Trail Run to the Dillon Community. This is the 4th annual event where a 5K and 15K trail run located on the BTC’s High Trails just outside of Dillon takes place. In 2023 we are hoping to get our name along with other top races in the state. Plan a weekend in Dillon, MT to attend this race and enjoy our trails.

The Pronghorn Pursuit, exclusively off-pavement, meanders through the gorgeous sagebrush hills of the High Trails System, with spectacular views of the Beaverhead River Valley below. The 15k course is challenging and will put your summer fitness to the test with 90% single-track and 2400’ of climbing. The course is a great mix of steep climbs and technical descents interspersed with sections of fast, flowing single-track. The 5K course offers a similar technical mix and the same great views, but at a more manageable scale for many runners. You can still expect to be challenged by this course, with some steeper sections climbing over 500’, but can look forward to the last kilometer being all downhill and smiles.

We invite you to visit our community, because we are a fun loving and hard working people. Dillon is located in Beaverhead County, which is home to a truly diverse group of Montanans, and totals close to three and half million acres. With room to roam, outdoor recreation abounds. Dillon is unique, it is a thriving small town that supports literally every type of small business from our local beloved flower shops, to bookstores, and eccentric coffee shops. We can't wait to see your smiling faces the weekend of August 5th!

These performances will either be in the visitor center or outdoors (weather dependent). They will also be giving a campfire program on Saturday evening at 7PM, at May Creek Campground.

The drum beat in many cultures is likened to a human heartbeat. Just as the heart is the lifeline of the body, in many cases the drum is the lifeline of many songs. The Nez Perce drum is an important part of their ceremonies and is often considered a sacred object. Drum music often accompanies specific songs whether they are prayers, dances, or celebrations.
