The Friends of the Medicine Bow Rail Trail will host the inaugural Med Bow Rail Marathon & Half Marathon on August 14th, 2021! The races will showcase the beautiful Medicine Bow Rail Trail and provide a unique high-elevation racing experience. The marathon course covers the rail trail from end-to-end and averages 8,926 feet in elevation. The trail is a gently graded, wide, gravel path. Marathon participants will follow the course through two states (the trail briefly dips into Colorado after starting just north of the state line) and finish at a serene mountain lake. The half-marathon course mirrors much of the northern portion of the marathon course. Course maps are available on the event web page at:

All race proceeds will fund trail upkeep and improvement, and the races are intended to promote use of the trail. The event will provide a fun and safe way to experience the trail, both competitively and non-competitively. The race will be open to all-comers. The races will be timed and fully staffed at seven (may be subject to change) aid stations, with a start/finish area at Lake Owen, near Albany, WY. All participants will receive a race t-shirt. Further details about aid stations, awards, cutoff times, the cancellation policy, and other frequently asked questions are available on the event web page. Race results will be publicly available on
