The early bird registration deadline for the fifth annual T-Bird Trek is Friday, May 31, 2019. After May 31 registration costs will go up. The T-Bird Trek is scheduled for Sunday, September 15.

The cost for those who register on or before May 31 is $50 to participate in the half marathon, $30 for the 10k, and $20 for the 5k, a savings of more than 25 percent. Children 12 and under run free in the 5k with a registered adult. Profits from the event will support scholarships for Casper College students, institutional grants, and alumni programs.

According to Ann Dalton, associate director of development, the T-Bird Trek is a race anyone can participate in. “There is a 5K on campus that you can run or walk at your own pace, a 10k that will get your heart pumping, and for a real challenge, the half-marathon that takes you up Casper Mountain to enjoy the view while giving you the satisfaction of participating in one tough half marathon,” she said.

This year’s trek features a new event: a downhill half marathon. “We will give the downhill marathoners a ride to the top, and they will then run to the finish line on the Casper College campus,” said Dalton. In addition, the foundation will also be supporting the Casper College Veterans Club’s first “Dog Trek” on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The T-Bird Trek is for runners, family, and friends, and showcases the Casper College campus and community. In addition to the runs scheduled for September 15, the day will also include a post-race breakfast and live music.
