CASPER, Wyo. — Registration is open for Casper College’s T-Bird Trek, to be held Sunday, September 12th. Runners, walkers, and families are invited to participate in a variety of race distances. Most races begin outside the Student Union-University of Wyoming/CC Center.

The 5K, (3.1 miles) features circuits around the Casper College campus, and costs $20 to enter. 

The 10K (6.2 miles) follows the asphalt path south toward the mountain and returns to campus. The entry fee is $30.

Two options are available for the half-marathon (13.1 miles) distance. One begins on campus and follows Casper Mountain Road to Lookout Point and then returns to CC. Last year saw the inaugural downhill half-marathon, which “proved to be very popular,” according to Ann Dalton, associate director of development for the Casper College Foundation. Downhill half-marathon runners will be bused to the top of Casper Mountain and return to the CC Campus. The entry fee for both options is $50.

Participants can also run the “Virtual Trek” and choose their own race time and location.

Profits from the event will support scholarships for Casper College students, institutional grants, and alumni programs.

In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Casper College, all runners and walkers, in person or virtually, will receive a commemorative 75th Anniversary T-Bird Trek medal.

A post-run breakfast and live music will be provided the day of the event.
