Laramie Range Epic

July 29, 2023

$110
 

The Laramie Range Epic is a high-quality mountain bike event on the beautiful single-track trails of Laramie, Wyoming.  The race originated in 1998, starting in historic Downtown Laramie. At that time, the race began with a police escort through town before climbing 1300 feet out of the Laramie valley and into the stunning Pole Mountain Trail System. Twenty-five+ years later, the race has maintained a traditional approach to cross-country racing while adapting to the evolution of cross-country culture.

Two distance options take place over a set, looped course; you can complete one lap (one and done) or two (Laramie range epic).  One lap is a 31-mile loop (4,184 ft of climbing/descending all over 7500 ft in elevation) winding through the Pole Mountain trail system.  Racers are supported by a dedicated group of volunteers and sponsors who help make the race as fun and approachable as it is challenging and competitive.  According to the race organizers regarding the terrain, sitting in the hills just East of Laramie, Wyoming, are the trails that make this area so special.

Over the course, there are aid stations every 10 miles with performance sports nutrition and fresh food. So this means there are three aid stations along the course, bringing that to six possible steps you can take to refuel during the Epic.  After the race, there will be some top-level food from food trucks, and you and your family can pre-buy food tickets for 10 dollars a person, which is good for one meal from any vendor. There will not just be food but a nice, good-hearted local feeling after-party with music and an award ceremony.

For a vibrant and local feeling mountain bike event on some world-class single track, the Strambecco editing staff highly recommends the Laramie Range Epic.
