Clubs and Trifecta
We like to encourage our runners to get out and enjoy the area where we hold our races, so we designate certain challenging and iconic activities in the park to be a part of our official club hikes and trifecta.
**Please note that due to weather conditions in Glacier, we’ve had to change one of the Trifecta activities! Learn more below.
We have three Club Hikes for the Glacier Half Marathon! They are Grinnell Glacier, Scenic Point, and Iceberg Lake. View details on each club hike below.
What do I get? Any runners that take the challenge and complete one of the designated hikes within 72 hours of running the race will officially join the club, get their pictures published on our website, plus receive a commemorative gift (we’re still deciding what this will be)! All you have to do is take a picture of yourself at the designated location which includes:
1) A clear view of your face
2) Your bib with bib numbers clearly visible
3) Your finisher medal in plain view
4) Clear background showing where you are
Once we’ve decided on Club Hikes, we’ll announce them and update this page.
These hikes are meant to be difficult and they can sometimes be dangerous. If you choose to attempt any of these hikes, you need to take them seriously. Please bring lots of water (more than you think you need), and bear spray.
*The hike to Grinnell could possibly be closed. Check with a ranger before heading out!
Where do I take my picture? Take your picture at Grinnell Glacier Overlook! You’ll be able to see incredible views of this colossal glacier!
Where do I take my picture? Take your picture at Scenic Point- the top of the hike.
Where do I take my picture? Take your picture at Iceberg Lake!
The Glacier Trifecta
Our race trifectas are comprised of 3 different activities. The Trifecta is meant to be challenging, but less strenuous than our club hikes. These are iconic activities inside the park that should be experienced, but are doable with children. The 3 activities that makeup the Glacier Half Marathon Trifecta are:
1) Saint Mary Lake
2) Trail of the Cedars
3) Running Eagle Falls
You must complete all 3 in order to complete the Trifecta. Same rules apply: take your picture at each of the 3 with your bib and finisher medal and send them to us 72 hours after finishing the race. Those who complete the Trifecta will get their pictures published on our website, plus receive a commemorative pin!

Not Currently Accessible
**Due to lots of extra snowfall this year, a lot of Going To The Sun Road is still closed and Hidden Lake is inaccessible. We hope to do this hike next year, but we will not be accepting admissions during the 2017 race.
