Fun Fact: “The course follows the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail and Continental Divide for 54 miles before dropping off the divide on the ID side as runners make their way to the finish line.  The length of Continental Divide covered in the 100K represents the border between Idaho and Montana, and the  separation between drainage to the Pacific Ocean (ID side) and Atlantic Ocean (MT side)Because runners are following the Continental Divide they are basically running along the ridge of a continuous mountain range.  The race is named after the mountain range it is located in:  Beaverhead Mountain Range. The race is unique because runners will always be high in the mountains following the natural elevation changes along the divide and will not ascend or descend into the deep creek and river valleys that border the course. Because of this, the entire race is at a high elevation with respect to this part of Idaho and Montana, 7,500 – 10,100 ft.  The average elevation of the Lemhi, ID and Bighole, MT valleys bordering the course are 4,500 and 6,000 ft, respectively.”
