As racers lined up at the starting line and awaited the shotgun start for the Montana CattleWomen’s Ranch Run, the cooking crew was already firing up the grill in anticipation of throwing Certified Hereford Beef tri-tip on the grill for the conclusion of the race.
A juicy and delicious slice of CHB tri-tip met runners at the finish line after they weaved their way through the 25-mile relay race spanning through the Castle Mountains in Lennep, Mont.
In it’s 5th year, the Montana CattleWomen’s annual Ranch Run is an adventure highlighting the ranching families and stewardship partners that benefit Montana in uncountable ways, says Kari Marks, Ranch Run crew member.
“The race wound through three ranches and crossed leased public lands that have been managed by the same families for over 100 years,” Marks says. “The goal of the race is to showcase a wide variety of ecosystems and how animal agriculture can be used as a tool to improve the environment.”
Seventy-eight runners and 15 walkers participated in this year’s event.
“We would like to thank Certified Hereford Beef for supplying the beef tri-tip for the runners at the finish line,” Marks says. “The tri-tip was a huge hit! I had at least 15 runners tell me they will be back next year just because the beef was so delicious.”
Certified Hereford Beef is a great source of protein to supply the body with the nutrients necessary to recover after extended physical exercise, including half of the daily recommended value of protein in each 3-ounce serving, as well as 10 essential vitamins and minerals.
