    I can’t speak for what I’m told are the excellent 50-mile and 100-mile vintages of the Bighorn Mountain Wild and Scenic Trail run, but I ran the 50K in 2014 and it beat me up pretty good. This was the first race I ran that ended at a significantly lower elevation than where it started (7500′ elevation at the start vs 3500′ elevation at the finish), and my quads were barking by the end of the race.

    The course is breathtaking, running up and down mountains, through hills and fields and forests, and finishing with a long stretch of mileage run alongside a roaring river. The uphill power climbs were truly grueling, and the long stretches of downhill running were positively quad-busting. It was an incredible experience, on a course that I’d like to tackle again some day in the future. Aid stations came every 4-8 miles, and I would definitely recommend running with a hydration pack.

    The post-race spread featured LOTS of hot food, located at a park that was conveniently situated next to the aforementioned river, which felt positively heavenly when I waded in for a post-race dip. I was a bit disappointed that there was no finisher’s medal for the 50K, but all finishers were given long-sleeved finisher’s t-shirts that were race-specific to each distance, so it was kind of like a wearable medal. This was in addition to the fetching Salomon race shirts that we’d already received, along with a Salomon insulated lunch bag and reusable ice pack. Finally, race registration included a complimentary breakfast the following morning, which was most welcome on our way out of town.

    God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’d like to come back in the future to take another stab at this course, maybe the 50-miler.

    I’m sure if I had trained appropriately for this race and done some real downhill trail running, I wouldn’t have melted down in such spectacular fashion. But I didn’t train and instead slogged through this race unceremoniously for about 3/4 of it. However, it was definitely gorgeous, well organized and extremely well-marked. The weather was perfect, the aid stations stocked with all kinds of delicious, energy-packed foods, and though I bemoaned the lack of a medal, the light hooded long-sleeve they gave to finishers is one of my favorite shirts.
