The Montana Cup is a team-oriented cross country meet that pits teams from each of Montana’s seven largest towns against each other for the right to claim the Montana Cup “traveling” trophy for one year. Learn more.


The 2023 Montana Cup was originally scheduled for Saturday, October 28 at the beautiful Zinn Ranch. It has since been cancelled:

MT Cup 2023 – No Go

Due to weather considerations (several more inches of snow, continuing cold, travel advisory alerts, etc.), the 2023 MT Cup has been cancelled.

Team Helena will regroup, and try again for November 2, 2024 (likely at the same amazing location).

It’s regrettable for us to be the first in MT Cup history to initiate a weather-related cancellation, but we firmly believe it to be the right call in the interest of safety, fun, and staging an event worthy of the MT Cup name.

We thank you for your high level of interest (265 registrants!), and sincerely hope that all of you (and more!) will be able to join us a year from now.

In the meantime, all the best in your running!

Patrick Judge, 2023/2024 Race Director
