WYOMING – For the first time in its 16-year history, the Adventure Racing World Championship (ARWC) will be held in the U.S. as the Cameco Cowboy Tough Expedition Race in Wyoming on Aug. 10-16.
Sixty teams from 20 countries will have six days to cover 450 miles of the Cowboy State’s varied and truly breath-taking terrain, making their way from the start line in Jackson Hole to the finisher’s arch in Casper. The race will include a stretch in the Wind River Range of Sublette County.
Participants will travel by foot, bike and rafts, and they can expect abundant wildlife sightings and scenery only Wyoming can offer, from vast ranch lands and majestic mountains to authentic ghost towns and dramatic canyons.
“Wyoming’s beautiful and unique landscape has challenged athletes competing in the Cowboy Tough race for the past four years,” said Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead. “The 2017 Adventure Racing World Championship will allow us to showcase Wyoming and all it has to offer to a worldwide audience.”
– From the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, “We would like to also inform everyone that the Cameco/Cowboy Tough World Championships Adventure race will come through Sublette County this month. There will be an increase in visitors and competitors from Aug. 10-16 as well.”
