Cowboy Tough Adventure Race Main




Introducing the
COWBOY TOUGH ADVENTURE RACE
July 18 - July 21, 2013



Produced by Rev3

Hosted by the City of Casper and the State of Wyoming

The Rev3 Cowboy Tough Adventure Race will be a series of racing events that will be hosted in Casper during the week of July 18th through July 21, 2013.

The main event, the Cowboy Tough Adventure Race, will be a three and a half day adventure trek that will cross every region, climate, and terrain that Wyoming has to offer.   This event will be attractive to hard core adventure athletes, and registrants from across the country are expected to participate. 

Not interested in pushing your body beyond the edge of human endurance?  There's still plenty race activities to participate in!  Four Community Race Events (see below!) are currently scheduled to take place that weekend.  These races are will be appealing to athletes of all levels, including some cooperative family events. 
 


Main Event:  Cowboy Tough Adventure Race
In conjunction with the State of Wyoming and the city of Casper, REV3 Adventure is excited to present the three and a half day Cowboy Tough Adventure Race. This race will challenge individual’s and teams’ physical and mental endurance to the limit. With Wyoming as the backdrop for the event, you can expect a wide variety of terrain that is beautiful, rugged, and inspiring.


Each day of the race will be broken into stages that will take between 16 and 24 hours to complete. The stage must be completed in a prescribed time to avoid being short-coursed or having points deducted. Teams will be held at the end of each stage at a transition area (TA) called a “Dark Zone” before being allowed to continue to the next stage. Mandatory points must be collected between TAs. Optional points collected will determine who will ultimately be crowned winner of the Cowboy Tough AR.

For elite adventure racers, there will be adequate optional points to keep you racing nonstop for the duration of the race. For teams out for the experience, collecting mandatory points will push you to your limits but also allow for recovery and rest during the “Dark Zone.”

Casper Glow Night 5K

July 19, 2013
REV3 has designed this race with families and friends in mind.  This race will take place at Mike Lansing Field at dusk and will run along the Platte River.  Each racer will receive a race number and a glow stick for the race.  The racers will then run a 5K race course as the sun goes down.  Each racer will be allowed to add as much reflective tape, flashing lights, and glow sticks to their body during the race for additional prizes.   After the race we will have a outdoor movie screen for families and friends to enjoy a movie under the stars, so bring a lawn chair and enjoy the evening.
