If weather conditions allow, construction will resume on local road projects in mid-April.

The Grizzly Peak Adventure Race

Turn Pedal and Burn, this event is in it's 5th year running. Expect the same carnival atmosphere, with good times, great people, from the past years with a few tweaks to the course.

The three part drag race into Red Lodge, Montana from the top of Red Lodge Mountain is one great way to kick off the spring race season. No training, no crazy diet, no expensive race equipment. All you'll need is the want to rip it, grip it and hold on tight for the run to the finish. The race kicks off with 2.5 miles of fast downhill ski or snowboard turns as you rip down Lazy M to the base area of Red Lodge Mountain. Click out of your boards and into your pedals and crank for town. It's 6 miles of twisting gravel roads and leg screaming pavement. Before you'll know it you be ready to embark on your final leg. This is the burn, a 2 mile run into downtown Red Lodge. Once you've made it to the finish line at the Beartooth Elks on Main Street, you can kick up your feet, enjoy a free beverage and know that you got the first race of the season out of the way, no sweat! This race is open to solo racers, and three racer relay teams. COED, Male and Female Divisions with awards for ages groups and best costumes!
