The Mustang Run will wind through Mowdy Ranch, which is located 10 miles NE of Coalgate, Oklahoma. Runners will navigate well marked trails up the rocky hills and down into the heavily wooded creek bottoms. The most of the wild horses will be moved to adjacent pastures but some of the horses are reluctant to move and will be on the race course. All of the horses will be visible to the runners so bring your camera. We offer you a chance to run among nature with nothing but the sound of the birds and wind to interrupt your thoughts.

All proceeds from the run are donated to the BLM for the continued care and maintenance of these beautiful animals. Millions of these wild horse once roamed this country, but the press of civilization now limits the land available for these horses. When their numbers get too great, the BLM is forced to capture and move horses to ranches like Mowdy Ranch where they are allowed to live and run free for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately ranches willing to take these beautiful horses are few and limited. Your help is needed to insure the continued existence of the wild mustangs. Thanks for your help. We hope to see you at the ranch.
