Davy Crockett's 100 mile creation, following the Pony Express Trail (Simpson Springs Road)... kind of an out-and-back.

Vince Romney

Features Wildlife

Overview

It's the annual Pony Express 100 Trail Run... semi-self supported (one aid station). Your vehicle is your mobile aid station.

Need to Know

Need to have a crew and vehicle, or arrange with Davy Crockett (RD) to self support (only experienced 100 milers).

Runner Notes

You are fully exposed to the elements... there is nothing larger than a sage brush out here.

Description

This dusty event is a great run that brings together a fun group of people ever year. You'll be assigned a Friday morning start time based on your expected elapsed time. Make sure you're there in time to check in prior to your start time (see the website for driving instructions).

Davy holds a short pre-race meeting, and then you are sent off down the road. Your crew gets another briefing, and then they head out as well to meet you a few miles down the road (wherever you desire) for your first aid station. You repeat this process for 100 miles.

Flora & Fauna

Wild horses often follow you... pretty cool.
