Hoofin’ it for Hunger Trail Race, Miles City MT


Hoofin’ it for Hunger Trail Race scheduled for October in Miles City

The MFB Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee is again collaborating with USDA/ARS Fort Keogh Research Station to host the 2015 Hoofin’ it for Hunger Trail Run.  This year’s race is slated for Sunday, October 11 and will include a 5K, 10K and half marathon course to be run on Fort Keogh property just outside of Miles City through farm fields, pasture land and along the Yellowstone River.  New aspects to be added this year include finisher medals for the half marathon, a post-race get together, special prizes for 1st-3rd place finishers in all categories and more. The pre-race dinner and packet pick-up will be held from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. October 10 at the Range Riders Museum in Miles City.  Many prizes will be offered for overall winners, as well as winners by age group.

“Montana Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers are really looking forward to hosting this race for the fifth year,” notes YF&R Chair Jenny Stovall. “This race is so unique because of the location and so successful that we are hoping to double our number again this year, which will give us 400 runners. Since the proceeds from this race are donated to the Montana Food Bank Network, this makes an increase in participants especially rewarding.”

Registration is open online, and all interested parties are encouraged to visit  www.mfbf.org to register.  You can also request a printed registration form by calling 406-587-3153.  The MFBF YF&R Committee started the Hoofin’ it for Hunger Race in 2011, with the goal of raising funds for the Montana Food Bank Network as a part of their partnership with Harvest for All and as a way to promote agriculture to the general public.
