BOZEMAN – The annual Ed Anacker Bridger Ridge run took place Saturday in Bozeman, and 250 competitors from all over the country competed.

The nearly 20-mile race takes runners throughout an elevation gain of 6,800 feet and then a drop of 9,500-feet as they run across the peaks of the Bridger Mountains. The finish line takes competitors right to the “M” Trailhead.
