About the Course

The course is on the scenic Terry Bison Ranch. Proceeds from the race will be used to fund exercise equipment for CRMC’s Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation program.

This is a rare opportunity to run/walk on an actual working buffalo ranch. The Terry Bison ranch was originally the south headquarters of the historic Warren Livestock Company and used for raising cattle and sheep. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the ranch twice in the early 1900’s. In 1993, the ranch was purchased by the Thiel family and the great American buffalo were introduced. The ranch is now 27,500 acres and stretches into Northern Colorado.

This scenic course is at times challenging but is worth it due to the amazing and unique views. The terrain includes gentle rolling prairie pasture, a short rocky hill we refer to as “The Terry Bison Incline”, and buffalo trails. The 5K, 10K and Half Marathon courses cross into Colorado. Restrooms are available at the start/finish line and porta potties will be available on the 10K/Half Marathon courses. Aid-stations will be available on the all courses. Water and light refreshments will be available at aid stations. Please bring your own energy gels and chews.


Walkers are welcome to participate in the 2K and 5K.
Each participant will receive a race t-shirt and a delicious hot breakfast provided by Sodexo. Each half marathon finisher will receive a decal. The top three male and the top three female finishers in each race will receive a medal.

Big Horn Racing Endurance Racing will be timing for the 5k, 10k, and ½ marathon finishers. Bog Horn uses ChronoTrack RFID timing technology, the industry leading provider of race timing and scoring solutions for endurance sports. The 5K, 10K, and half marathon courses will be chip timed for those who register prior to race day. Overall results will be determined by gun time, with age group results determined by net time.

There will be no award ceremony. Top finishers will receive their medals via mail.
Packet Pickup: Drive up race packet pickup will be available on Friday, September 09, 2022, from noon to 5 p.m. at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center Foundation, 408 E. 23rd St. Cheyenne, Wy 82001 and at the Terry Bison Ranch starting at 7 a.m. on September 10, 2022.
