Sounds cool, but what actually is it?

Good question. After biking and running around Elk Basin we knew it would be the PERFECT spot for an event....and the rest is history in the making! We wanted to camp, run, bike, and celebrate recreating in our wild backyard. Bonus because most of our local favorite trails aren't melted out by mid-June we're all craving some warm desert time.

BEFORE THE SNOW MELTS AND THE RATTLESNAKES COME OUT

Desert In the Backyard is an outdoor celebration that features 24-Hours of Elk Basin, a running and biking event, casual self-timed running races, camping, live music, catered food, yoga, and friends.

As a brand new event, DITBY is still figuring it out a bit. With heavy hitting event director and owner of Montana Cycling Project heading up the 24 Hour bike race and Kristen from Red Lodge Events taking on the running and camping, you'll be in good hands.

Have a cool suggestion for something we should include to really complete the party? We're all ears!
