The early bird registration deadline for the Seventh Annual T-Bird Trek is Monday, May 31, 2021. Beginning Tuesday, June 1, the cost for all race options will increase by $10.

The cost for those who register on or before May 31 is $50 to participate in the Outlook Point half-marathon, $50 for the Downhill half-marathon, $40 for the 10K, and $30 for the 5K. Profits from the event will support scholarships for Casper College students, institutional grants, and alumni programs.

The 5K takes place on campus, and participants can run or walk at their own pace. The 10K is a standard 10K race designed to get hearts pumping. The two half-marathons involve Casper Mountain, with the Lookout Point requiring participants to go up Casper Mountain Road and turn around at Lookout Point. Runners in the Downhill half-marathon will begin at the end of East End Road and run down to the finish line at the Casper College campus. For the Downhill half-marathon runners buses leave the Casper College campus at 6 a.m. The buses will be parked in front of the Jorgensen/Bryce Commons firepit in front of the Casper College Student Union and University of Wyoming at Casper building on the Casper College campus.

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 Sept. 12, the day will also include free musical entertainment and breakfast.
