The Poker RUN!! is a road race on a combination of paved and gravel roads. There is a 5K and a 10K course. It is a very flat course that takes you, in part, through tree-lined Itch-Kep-Pe Park and campground, which runs alongside the beautiful Yellowstone River. Walkers are welcome on the 5K course. This race has an optional component of collecting poker cards at each mile marker along the course. At the end of the race, prizes will be given for the top poker hands! The race is being held to benefit the Columbus Mental Health Center, a non-profit organization that provides mental health and addiction treatment to residents of Stillwater County. In addition to raising awareness about the need for mental and behavioral health services in rural communities, we hope to provide an opportunity for people to enjoy the beautiful Montana scenery while enjoying a low-risk and health-promoting activity. Thanks to the support of generous donors in the community, you can be sure this will be a "Poker RUN!" unlike any other!
