The 2010 Pinedale Half Marathon hits the ground on Saturday, September 25th to celebrate 7 years of welcoming "all walks of life" to beautiful Pinedale, Wyoming. Last year, the event drew more than 400 runners, walkers and their families from as far away as Connecticut. We look forward to welcoming even more participants this year and hope you'll join us to make this event our best ever!
This day is for everyone: Young and old, runners and walkers, serious competitors, occasional exercisers, and curious spectators. So, bring your friends and family for a great weekend in Pinedale!
