THE HUNT TRAIL RACE – POSTPONED

DATE TBD

1 Mile / 6 Mile / 16 Mile Trail Run

This is the Wyoming trail run of trail runs. You may have your tags, you may do your glassing, but will you run this course? I dare you…

This isn’t about the stalk, this about the speed – stalk ’em, then pass ’em!

You are required to wear hunter orange of some sort and the best hunter’s outfit gets a sweet prize!

There will be 1 aid station for the 6 Miler and 3 for the 16 Miler.  All aid stations will be CUPLESS.  This means you are responsible for carrying your own bottle or hydration pack.  Aid stations will have water, Tailwind Nutrition drink, and snacks.

Like every good run, there will be free beer, soda, and food at the finish.

What You'll Get:

  • Sweet views & some hardcore trails
  • T-Shirt and bragging rights
  • Prize for the most stealth hunter attire
  • Free Beer and After Party
  • What more do you need?

RACE DAY DETAILS

It might be hot, or it might be a tid bit chilly out there….there may be rattlers, or there may be bears.  Dress in layers, bring your bear spray, keep alert, and bring a warm/dry change of clothes for the afterparty!  

We recommend running with bear spray and your phone.  There will be volunteers stashed throughout the course to ensure safety and help make sure you’re on or near the course.  All courses will be marked with colored flagging.  Be aware, these trail races will take longer than your road times.  Out of respect for our volunteers’ time, we will only allow walkers/hikers on the 1 and 6 mile courses.  The 16 miler is reserved for runners only (just don’t expect to run the whole thing, you mortal).  

The start/finish of all races is located at the Cody Archery Range.
