About Casper Marathon

The Casper Marathon was started in 2002 by members of the Local Casper Running group called “The Windy City Striders”.  The local running organization had a lot of interest for a sanctioned full marathon race and wanted to explore the opportunity to host the annual event in addition to their local Casper series of running events, which they are still actively hosting today.

As the Casper Wyoming Marathon grew in participant numbers over the years in the community it was decided to create a separate board-committee to help with the Marathons logistics.  The now “Visit Casper Marathon” today has since flourished into the fastest growing running event in the State of Wyoming and will also be hosting an RRCA State Championship Race in 2024, along with its traditional USATF and Boston Qualifying event  for those who wish to pursue their running goals and becoming amongst some of the largest Wyoming Marathon’s races in the state today.

The Visit Casper Marathon event also hosts a variety of races distances offering  a 10k race, Half Marathon race, a Full Marathon relay race, and it’s traditional Full Marathon Race in the Cowboy State on that first Sunday in June annually. All the Wyoming running races at the Visit Casper Marathon event are professionally timed with RFD Chipped Race Bibs whether you are running the 10K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon Relay or the Full Marathon race event.  You also can be sure to get some other local discounts along with your lodging if coming in from out of town and visiting us here through this years host hotel along with plenty of Fun Things To Do In Casper Wyoming.
