Run the Red Desert Trail Runs
South Pass City | Rockies to Tetons
Run The Red – Trail runs of a half marathon, 50k and 100k races. 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 day will be filled with live music and cultural celebrations. Members of the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho Tribes will speak about the cultural significance of the Red Desert and the meaning of their dance and song. Elected officials and state leaders have been invited to speak about the importance of public lands to all people. Two local food trucks — Hungry Buddha from Rock Springs and Monahooboo Hut from Wind River — will provide food options for the public and beer will be served by Square State Brewing from Rock Springs. Volunteers, families, and friends are all welcome. Details at runthereddesert.com.
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 wildest places.
