Traveling to Glacier
We want to help you make the most out of your vacation. Here are some helpful links to some of our sponsors as well as general information. We’ll be updating the links below as we get closer to race day.
Where to Stay
VACATION RACES CAMPGROUND » The most convenient (and most fun) place to stay during race weekend is our Vacation Races Campground! The Vacation Races campground & race expo will be located at Red Eagle Campground on the Blackfeet reservation at the south end of Lower Two Medicine Lake (off of Highway 49).
There is plenty of space for campers, and is conveniently located at the same location as the race expo. Keep in mind that this is primitive camping, similar to what we did at our inaugural year. We will have a shuttle to the start line on race morning (for campers only). There will also be shuttle service back to the campground from the finish. More details to come.
We will provide toilets, water, and campfires. You can sleep in your car, tent, hammock, an RV (no hookups), or rent a tent from us for an additional charge. Whichever you choose, you still have to reserve a spot. Campsites do not include cots, sleeping bags, pillows, headlamps, cooking stoves and supplies, or firewood.

Campsite checkout will be by Sunday, June 17th, by 9:00am. If you reserved a tent you will need to turn it into the camp hosts before you leave.
You can make a reservation as part of your race registration when you sign up! If you've already registered, you can log back in and edit your registration to add on a camping option.
MORE LODGING OPTIONS
If camping isn’t your style, here’s a quick guide of places to look for lodging near the race!
EAST GLACIER VILLAGE - East Glacier Village has the most lodging options in the area. It will be the easiest to place to find lodging for race weekend, but will also likely be the first place to fill up. This will be the best place to stay if you’re hoping to stay near the finish line.
BROWNING - If you can’t find lodging in East Glacier Village, Browning will be the next town to look in. It’s about 15 minutes away from the start and finish lines and has several lodging options.
ST. MARY - This is sm
all town north of the race, but it has some good lodging options. You should plan on about a 45 minute drive to and from the race if you stay here.
ADDITIONAL HOTEL, VACATION RENTAL, AND CAMPING OPTIONS
Whether you prefer a hotel, the convenience of a home-like living space, or want to be a part of the great outdoors there's an option for you! There are a few companies we've partnered with to search for the best options in the area for hotels, vacation rentals, and camping areas:
Where to Fly
KALISPELL - Kalispell is a major hub for Glacier National Park! Most runners will likely fly or drive through Kalispell on their way to the race. That being said, it’s about an hour and a half away from where the race will take place. If lodging is full up on the east side of the park, this is a really great place to stay. Find options on the Discover Kalispell website.
Where to Eat
We will have host restaurants to share with you as we get closer to the race!
