Old Gabe and Blanket Chief are both nicknames for Jim Bridger who lived in the wild west from 1822 (age 17) until 1867. He discovered Salt Lake, South Pass and the current pass for I-80 going into Salt Lake City. He explored the Gallatin Valley area and trapped in the area in the 1840’s. He has lots of things named for him including the Old Gabe 25K/50K and the Jim Bridger Trail Run (10 miles, generally the week after the 25K/50K).
All profits go to the Bozeman Track Club (only available XC running team for middle schoolers).
