About This Activity

This course takes runners through the beautiful Sinks Canyon State Park. Runners scramble up and down the canyon walls, on both developed and primitive trails. Runners go through sagebrush meadows, conifer forests, alongside the Popo Agie River, and up to dolomite cliffs known worldwide for climbing. The length of the course is 5.9 miles. It is open to both trail runners and families who would like to hike the route. Cost is $25/adults and $10/for kids under 13. This fee includes an official race t-shirt and race waterbottle. The State Park is located 7 miles outside of Lander, Wyoming at 6500'.

The race is scheduled two days prior to the full solar eclipse. Lander, WY  and the surrounding area is in the line of totality for the eclipse, so viewers will get to experience total darkness. Historically, the area only has a 9 percent chance of cloud cover on that date, making this a great location to view the eclipse. This is an excellent opportunity to schedule a weekend trip and see some of the most beautiful natural features Wyoming has to offer and experience the eclipse of a lifetime!
