The Red Desert contains countless opportunities for enjoying wild spaces, including significant Wilderness Study Areas and other wilderness quality lands. In 2014 the inaugural race was run in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and the 30th anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act. This race continues to celebrate those achievements and our wild Wyoming places.

The Wyoming Outdoor Council, and the National Outdoor Leadership School and other partners and sponsors invite runners and their families to experience this unique landscape while running the race, hiking near to the course, viewing the Boar’s Tusk, enjoying interpretation of the petroglyphs and more.
