Big Butte Challenge 



  • Participants can complete the 5 Challenges in any order, uploading as many efforts as they like, within the 10-week timeframe: March 20 @12:01am PDT through May 31 @ 11:59pm PDT
  • Any GPS device that can sync to Strava or export GPX files can be used to submit your times.
  • Times must be submitted no more than 24 hours after that attempt has been started.
  • For the cumulative Challenge award, times for all 5 Challenges will be added to determine a cumulative time. Participants who have the lowest cumulative times will be eligible for prizes.
  • Participants who are unable to make one or more of the Challenges will receive a time equal to the slowest participant in their category PLUS one minute.
  • To be eligible for the Cumulative Challenge prize, you must complete a minimum of two Challenges.
  • Everyone who participates in at least one Stage will receive a custom “I LIKE BIG BUTTES” neck gaiter and a complimentary beer from the sponsor brewer(ies).
  • Participants must follow the Challenge routes published in the directions identified (download the GPX to run it for turn-by-turn directions if your computer supports navigation directions)
  • Participants must keep 6 feet distance from other hikers and runners as best they can. Passing and yielding is the only exception (aka NO DRAFTING).
  • Participants must follow all trail rules and etiquette
  • These are public trails
  • Pack it in pack it out (aka Leave no Trace)
  • Be Safe, Honest, Accountable, Responsible, and Kind
