Man Against Horse Race
This will be the 38th annual of The Man Against Horse Race! This is a race where horses and their rides get to compete alongside runners on the same courses at the same time. Legend has it that in 1983 Man against Horse began by a bar bet between Gheral Brownlow and Cowboy Steve Rafters. Gheral bet Steve he could outrun his horse in an endurance event and the rest is history. The races consist of three distances 50 miles (Approx. 8,000 +-), 25 miles (Approx. 3,600+-) and a half marathon (Approx. 800 +-). See event website for more details and we hope to see you at this historic race!
