Lander Running Club host virtual Challenge for Charities competition

Lander Community Foundation’s 10-for-10 Celebration is presented by Wyoming Community Bank – Your Hometown Bank with Hometown Pride.

As part of the Lander Community Foundation’s 10-for-10: Celebrating 10 Years of Challenge for Charities, The Lander Running Club is hosting a FREE Virtual Competition to celebrate our love for running, our appreciation for community, and to offer an opportunity for people to challenge themselves in a competitive format. 

The races will be live from July 4th at 5 am through Saturday, July 11th at 10 pm. You can run or walk the routes on your own schedule, you can try them multiple times to improve your time, you can dress up in your best Fourth of July outfit. Have fun with this. Challenge yourself to move out of your comfort zone. And be sure to smile while you are doing it!

There are three routes to choose from:

  • The Firecracker: 1 mile on the track: Run four laps around the track as fast as you can!
  • The Sparkler: 3.5-mile trail race: Starting at the base of the stock bypass by the big boulder, run up the stock bypass trail to the middle fork trail. Continue down the Middle Fork trail back where you started to the Stock Bypass trailhead sign. 
  • RiseUp Half: 13-mile road race: Start at City Park and run up to The Rise and back to the city park for the finish. 
  • Triple Crown – Complete all three routes during the week

You may register for 1 distance or multiple distances. If you plan to run all three routes, register for each individual distance plus the Triple Crown category. 

After you complete your run(s), you can submit your result(s) on RunSignUp.com by July 13th at 11:59 PM. 

Awards will be given to the top three men and women finishers in each category, including the Triple Crown category. You can win more than one category. You must spend your earnings at a local business and send us a photo of you supporting our amazing local businesses.
