RUN THE RED TRAIL RACE Saturday – September 28, 2019
Event DescriptionThe Wyoming Wilderness Association, the National Outdoor Leadership School, and other 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, exploring nearby petroglyphs and more. We encourage you to bring family and friends to explore the desert before and after the race! The Red Desert is a uniquely Wyoming Landscape—one blanketed with sage, carved with colorful badlands, rich with wildlife, and steeped in cultural and historical significance. The Red Desert contains countless opportunities for enjoying wild spaces, including Wilderness Study Areas, the longest ungulate migration route in the lower 48 states, and more.
Originally conceived to honor the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and the 30th anniversary of the Wyoming Wilderness Act, Run the Red has become an annual celebration of Wyoming’s Red Desert. The race has taken place for 5 consecutive years. In 2019, Run the Red, will be elevated so that the main distance is (120k) with the intent of gathering national attention for conservation of the special places in the Northern Red Desert.
