Klondike Rush

Klondike Rush - the run 'neath the Bighorns

43rd Annual Klondike Rush

Wyoming’s Oldest and Finest 10k Race

In 1978, the Inaugural Klondike Rush set out on the now historic 10K course. In the years since the Klondike Rush has grown to include the 5K course and the Klondike Volks. Back for its 5th Annual ‘running’, the Klondike Volks is an event for those that are looking for less Rush and more stroll, giving them to chance to experience the historic 10K course at their own pace.

The Klondike Rush is the oldest running 10K event in Wyoming and surrounding states. Our historic 10K course will get you out into the hills with some good climbs and great scenery as you run to views of the Bighorn Mountains and the sounds of Clear Creek. The popularity of this event continued to grow over the years and led to the addition of the 5k course. The 5k course is fun and fast for those interested in time, but is also very family and walker friendly. The Klondike Rush is fun for the whole family!
