If you are looking for a world-class event that covers great distances at high speed, offers an adventure through vastly different landscapes on a journey through American history (from dinosaurs to Native Americans to wild west wranglers to ghost towns), keep reading. We have the race for you.
You’ll have 6 days to cover about 450 miles, navigating your way across The Cowboy State via foot, mountain bike, and boat. This unbridled adventure takes place with the remarkable backdrop of the state’s jaw-dropping landscape, including Grand Teton National Park, and amid the state’s diverse array of wildlife. At any point it could just be you, your teammates and a bison, elk, bighorn sheep, moose, bear, antelope, wild horse, mountain lion, bobcat, or a prairie dog. Don’t forget, THIS is where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play. The course will take racers over majestic mountains, through authentic ghost towns, down into dramatic canyons, and paddling along alpine rivers. From the climbing section, participants can take in the view for miles and miles, but teams also may explore a cave where they can’t see past their nose. Race through history on the old wagon roads used for the Oregon Trail, the Pony Express, and the Gold Rush. Trek and ride through areas where vegetation thins out into valleys with many different varieties of sage and high-elevation alpine woods. You’ll also travel up historic mountain passes topping out at over 10,000’ crossing the Continental Divide
