48th Annual Beartooth Run

The Beartooth Run is Montana's classic hill climb road race, and this year, it has a new 10K course at 10,000-ft elevation on the top of the scenic Beartooth Pass. The new "10 at 10" course (see map) showcases awesome views from the top of Line Creek Plateau, including the prominent Bear's Tooth, which the area was named after. Along with its amazing vistas, this course is all above 10,000 feet, making it one of the highest road races in the United States. Runners can choose between a 5K and 10K distance.

This is one of Montana's finest road races with it's amazing views and challenging course. Though we encourage all runners to strive to challenge themselves, you'll find that the 10k at 10,000 isn't your typical community "fun run." Note that there isn't a walking category, (though many runners end up walking) and that there is a time limit on this race of 1 hour at 50 minutes.


TIME: Race starts at 8:30 am

Sixteen Tons: Songs and Stories of Work in America at the Museum

The Carbon County Historical Society & Museum will host Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau Program ¡°Load Sixteen Tons, And What Do You Get?¡± with Bill Rossiter on Wednesday July 13th at 7pm. The program will be held at the museum, located at 224 N Broadway in Red Lodge. The presentation is free and open to the public. Partial funding for the Speakers Bureau program is provided by a legislative grant from Montana¡¯s Cultural Trust.

From ¡°I¡¯ve Been Working on the Railroad¡± to ¡°Take This Job and Shove It,¡± Americans have sung about work, whether they¡¯re nine-to-fivers or dawn-to-duskers. The songs from union halls, mines, fields, factories, picket lines and jail cells are the soundtrack to an important part of American history, and they can still stir us. As one old-timer put it, ¡°The boss had all the money, but we had all the songs.¡±

Railroad CEO Jay Gould scoffed when he sent thugs to beat up striking workers: ¡°I can always hire one half of the working class to kill the other half.¡± But many workers, refusing to ¡°kill the other half,¡± tried to pull the halves together, and they used songs to boost their spirit, air their grievances, rally their fellow workers and show that ¡°united we stand¡± is more than just a slogan¡ªit¡¯s a tactic.

Bill Rossiter of Kalispell, Mont., emeritus instructor of literature, humanities and folklore, will accompany the songs with guitar, banjo, autoharp and harmonica

For more information, please call the museum at 406-446-3667


COST: Free and open to the Public

TIME: 7pm
