TOUGHFEST Is Back! Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 22, 2023 and join us at the lab.


Mark your calendars for Thursday, June 22nd! This is a special opportunity for MTNTOUGH'ers to gather, share knowledge, and push each other at the Bozeman Lab. We’ll be hauling heavy packs up a mountain, prepare meals for kids dealing with food insecurity via MTN OPS Conquer Hunger *250 volunteers needed, crushing it in the gym, enjoying some food, brews, and camaraderie.  If you plan on attending the Total Archery Challenge in Big Sky, MT you can also stay overnight for free at the Lab prior to the Big Sky TAC event.

Heavy Pack Challenge
Bring your hunting pack and your best boots and get ready to carry a load to the top of the mountain! We will be hauling 110 gallons of water 4000 vertical feet, over 4 miles, to the top of Baldy. This will allow the Bridger Ridge Run to have this aid station fully stocked. This is also an opportunity to contribute to the run if you plan on applying for it in the future. *In need of 30-40 volunteers for this **please note this is an extreme endurance event. Do not feel obligated to participate as we are going to be doing the Conquer Hunger event concurrently.
