The 2021 18th Annual Casper Marathon would not have been a success without our Race Sponsors and Volunteers. Your support helped race participants, and local non-profits experience and benefit from a world class event. With over 400 registrations and runners from 40 states, your support also has an impact on bringing business to our local community. The feedback from the runners has been nothing short of stellar – we could not achieve this without the support of our community.

“Thank you for putting on a great event! You have a wonderful city and the crew from

Wisconsin made it back home this evening!”

“Outstanding work! Great race that I would definitely do again.”

“Thank you so much for putting on a stellar event from start to finish. The hospitality at all points of the race was top-notch! This was my 34th state raced in, and probably one of the best races I’ve encountered so far! Thanks again.”

We had many first time runners participate in our 9.3K distance who are now “hooked”. Your support has helped them start their journey to health.

Please know that your partnership has a huge impact here where we all live and work. Not only on race day, but it benefits local non-profits to continue their mission to support individuals that use them all year long. Our Committee made and kept our commitment to buy everything needed to organize the race from local businesses this year. We are passionate about not only this event, but our community.

As we prepare for our 19th Annual Event in 2022 and our 20th Anniversary in 2023, we look forward to continuing our partnership with each of our VALUED Sponsors for years to come.

On behalf of our Board of Directors and Race Participants we offer a sincere and heartfelt Thank You!
