Run the Red Trail Half Marathon

Posted by: Caitlin Camilliere on Apr 11, 2014

The Wyoming Outdoor Council, Wyoming Wilderness Association, and NOLS are hosting the first annual Run the Red Trail Half Marathon! Join us on May 31st at 9am in Wyoming's beautiful Red Desert. This area is home to seven proposed Wilderness Areas and stretches over 6 million acres. But don't worry, we're only running a 1/2 Marathon.

This trail run through the Red Desert offers expansive views of the Boar's Tusk, North and South Table Mountains, the Killpecker Sand Dunes, Steamboat Mountain, and the Wind River Mountains. Runners will enjoy wide-open spaces while traversing this wild landscape.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and the 30th anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act. Since 1964, more than 100 million acres have been designated as Wilderness. This status provides the highest level of protection for wilderness values, and maintains the area’s pristine state. This race celebrates those achievements and our wild Wyoming places.

Bring family and friends for interpretation of the White Mountain Petroglyphs by renowned naturalist and Red Desert expert John Mionczynski and cool down after the run with yoga provided by Sylvia Carl from Lander's Ananda Yoga Studio!
