The T-Bird Trek is a Half-Marathon run, 10K Run/Walk and 5K Run/Walk that begins on the scenic Casper College Campus, overlooking the high range City of Casper to the north and beautiful Casper Mountain to the south. The recently completed Campus Plaza serves as a focal point for the Trek. The Half-Marathon departs and concludes on the campus and features some significant elevation gain and loss, with aid stations and porta-potties along the route. The 10K and the 5K also begin and end at Casper College. The 10K and 5K run/walks have some hills, all under the wide Wyoming sky. Live music at a couple of spots along the courses will help keep you going. A post-race party awaits you at the finish line, including more music and fun activities for the kids. In addition to the half-marathon and 5K, there's a free 2K run/walk for children and adults. Register for the 2K on the day of the race.
