Bighorn Mountain Trail Runs Draws Hundreds

Friday and Saturday hundreds of runners from across the nation and even worldwide competed in the Bighorn Mountain Wild and Scenic Trail Runs. Runners could compete in a 100 and 50-mile race along with a 50K and 30K race.

Over 600 runners competed. The 100-mile endurance run had 167 starters with 140 finishing the grueling event. Course Director Karen Powers says preparation is the key.

The winner for the 100 miler was from Japan.

It's the challenge of the Bighorns that the runners come for.

The race drew entrants from Mexico, Canada, Japan, Sweden, Germany as well as across the nation. They bring a boost to our local economy.

The races began and ended at Scott Bicentennial Park in Dayton.
