For the last 100 years Wyoming cowboys have "drifted" their cattle each fall out of the mountains where they go to to the desert for the winter. The cows want nothing to do with this winter wonderland. Our racers don't have that same sense of self preservation. You will experience Wyoming-- under Wyoming's terms--Wyoming style. Choose your discipline--Ski, Bike, Run-- then set out to complete the course before mother nature finds a way to finish it for you. It is still very much winter up here in March. The temperatures can be sub zero, the wind can be relentless, and the snow ranges from fast and firm to soft and soul sucking. If you want a fast manicured course with aid stations every few miles this isn't your race. If you want a true challenge in magical untamed wilderness, join us this March for the first Drift 100.
The inaugural Drift 100 will take place March 13, 2020. The course is approximately 101 miles with 7,200 feet of elevation gain loss. This is a self sufficient race. No drop bags, no pacers, no cell service. Check points are separated by up to 35 miles of varied conditions and temperatures. Much of the course is along the CDT and along the continental divide itself you will reach elevations just shy of 10,000 feet.
