Registration for all races are now open.
Official online sign up for the Greater Yellowstone Adventure Series races has always opened at high noon
(12:00 PM) Mountain Standard Time on March 1. The reason? It was on March 1, 1872 that the US
Congress established Yellowstone National Park in what was then the Territories of Montana and
Wyoming. The region had only been explored once and had barely been surveyed. But, President Grant
had the foresight to create the world’s first national park. Good Call!
We are now open for online registration for all eight of our races. The signup links are below. The race packets can be found in the Races page of this site. If you prefer to signup off-line, please download and fill out this form and mail the form and payment as instructed. For the race entry fee, insert the amount listed on the signup links below on events.com. Please also send us an email to to let us know that you've signed up in this way.
Finally, please sign up for our free newsletter so you’ll always be in the loop. Contact us by email anytime if you
have questions. See you this summer!
