The Sundance Trail Run is held in the beautiful Bearlodge Mountain's of North East Wyoming's Black Hills. Pine forests, spring fed mountain streams, aspen groves, and exposed ridges with views of the surrounding Great Plains make this challenging trail run a premier event. The Sundance Trail System is a network of single-track trails with short sections of forest road used to create a "grand tour" of the Bearlodge Mountains. Sundance is the needle in your haystack for off-pavement mountain trail running; with well-supplied aid stations, friendly volunteers, and excellent course markings. This small grassroots event with character is sure to impress whether it be the camping located at the Start/Finish, the amazing course or the post race camaraderie.
Choose from the 10k, 30k or the 50k challenging mountain trail courses. Full course details are available at www.sundancetrailrun.com.
Race Directors Notes
A few tips to consider while planning your trip to Sundance, Wyoming
1) Camping is available at the Start/Finish - Reuter Campground (water is shut off by race day- bring plenty of water with you.)
2) Nearest running shops are in Spearfish, SD - 30 miles or Rapid City, SD/Gillette, WY - both are an hour drive from Sundance. Bring your own gels, caps, specialty items with you. No guarantee you will find what you are looking for Late Friday evening.
3) Friday lunch at Higbee's Cafe. Dinner at Etta's Place in Sundance. Post race recovery at Devils Tower Lodge, located near the base of America's First National Monument. Crook County Museum and the 1875 Gallery are both located in Sundance and worth a look around. Best coffee is at the Wild West Espresso along with the 30k and 50k registration/ check-in.
