The annual Run & Ride will be held on Sunday, June 7 at 9:00 am in
Wilson, Wyoming. This fundraiser for the Oncology Patient Fund at the
St. John's Hospital Foundation consists of a 5-kilometer run combined
with a 15-kilometer bike ride.
The start and finish of the race is located in the front driveway of Wilson
Elementary. The course for both portions of the race follows the scenic
Fish Creek Road--a beautiful two-lane country road that winds north of
Wilson. The race is an “out-and-back" with the transition zone
at the school, making for multiple opportunities for spectators to watch.
In addition to individual categories for men and women, there are men’s
and women’s teams and mixed team categories, as well as categories
for teens. Younger children have their own shorter race course. For those
who would like to participate without the pressure of racing, there is
an untimed “fun” class.
Over the past fifteen years, the Run & Ride has attracted over 2,500
participants and raised over $100,000 for local patients and families
facing financial difficulties as a result of their treatment for cancer.
Registration is available prior to the race at Skinny Skis for $20. Race
day registration is available at Wilson Elementary 7:30-8:30 am for $25.
Gold sponsors include Skinny Skis; Fitzgerald's Bicycles; Emily Knobloch,
MD and Robert Berlin, MD; and Jackson Hole Medical Imaging.
