The only other major one is the Bighorn Wild and Scenic Trail run, and that one fills up pretty quickly. I ran this race as my first 50K. I picked a challenging one, as it was in the Bear Lodge Mountains of Wyoming with plenty of vertical climbing. It really gave me a taste of what a trail ultra is like. The weather was cold with heavy rain and a trace of snow at the higher elevations the night before. The scenery was beautiful though, and there was only one place where I had trouble finding the trail. There were sufficient aid stations, but nothing spectacular in the way of trail fare. As I am writing this 4 years after the fact, I don’t remember if there were any finisher medals, but I don’t think so. There were only 14 finishers the year I ran, which was the last year they did the 50K. I think they continued doing a 30K for a few years. I think part of the problem is that there are just few ultra runners in that part of the country. I will always remember it though as it was my first ultramarathon and a challenging one at that.
