It’s not every day that you see a rodeo clown riding a bull with an air horn in hand at the starting line of a 10K course. But that’s exactly what runners and spectators alike were treated to at the 40th Annual Klondike Rush. Whistle Nut and his trusty bull Ole kicked off the annual race by sounding the horn and then running the first hundred yards with the surprised crowd of participants.
The race went off without a hitch and the course presented runners with the challenge they have come to expect from previous year: easy road sections to begin and well-groomed trail miles to finish.
The participation rivaled that of the years when the race was at its peak with an increase in the number of volks marchers and 5K entries. Thank you to all that participated as well as those that turned out to cheer on friends and family on the course. The storied Klondike Race is one of the oldest races in Wyoming and this year’s event made it easy to see why everyone gathers each year to build on the history of such a great event.
