You can pick up your bib/goodie bag at Star View Park in Afton (one block East of Wells-Fargo) the night before the race from 7-8:30. If you can't make it we can get you checked in race morning.
6 a.m. start for the 50k (you must check in again so we know you're on the course)
7:30 a.m. the 25k buses leave the parking lot of Star Valley High School (445 W. Swift Creek Lane, Afton) to shuttle to the 8:30 a.m. start. Please do not drive your own vehicles to the start due to limited parking.
Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
El Vaquero Loco 2011 - Thanks for making this year's race such a success. We will be looking on ways to make it possible for even more people to be involved next year-both runners and volunteers. We will be ready for registration a little earlier this year. Hopefully by January 1. Check back later for more information.
9th annual. Saturday, August 10th, 2013. Out and back course on nearly 100% singletrack. Beautiful vistas. Very tough and technical. It has been our experience that you run the 25k if you are not used to running technical trails at altitude.
