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 much 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 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 Casper Marathon today has since flourished into a Non-Profit organization, an RRCA Member, and a USATF Boston Qualifying event for those who wish to pursue their running goals.
The Marathon now also hosts a variety of races distances on that first Sunday in June annually. All the race distance events are professionally timed with RFD Chipped Race Bibs whether you are running the 10K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon Relay or Full Marathon. Packet pickup usually consists of an Expo meet & greet, A guest speaker, Pasta dinner availability and of course Runners Swag and T-Shirts.
