Early Race Preview of the new 2021 Battle at the Butte in Prineville

Stay tuned to the Battle at the Butte, coming to the beautiful Barnes Butte Recreation Area in the heart of Prineville on September 25th, 2021. This will be a multi-distance trail run (5 & 10 miles) and only 50 entries for each distance will be opened.  The courses will be 100% dirt and have been designed by trail runners like you. Yes, runners will be going to the top of the Butte (though the exact routes will be released July 2021).

Awards will be presented to the overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd and masters male/female in each distance. Each finisher will receive a hand crafted wooden medal created locally right here in Crook County. Funds from this event will be donated directly to the Crook County High School Cross Country Team and the Humane Society of the Ochocos.

Show your support for the local community and explore what the Barnes Butte has to offer.

Registration options will be released January 2021 and please e-mail Stephen at if you are interested in getting involved.
