As you sign up for this Challenge, we will mail out to you the sticker, patch and pin for this Challenge. This event is backdated to April 12th, 2020, the beginning of our WARHORSE Challenges! This is so you can track all the miles from the first challenges of 2020. Not all stations were always used, some were used only when a river washed out and many locations were controversial, as the buildings were wooden and burned down a lot time ago. The spirit of the ride is to follow the route by tracking your mileage from each ride. It will add up quickly over time and you will be able to see your progress on the map. The long term tech support needed for this Challenge is the reasoning behind the higher cost. We hope to see this grow the spirit of the challenges and YES you can use more than one horse for this challenge! Pony Express riders often changed horses every 8 to 10 miles. I hope this Challenge is inspirational to those who take it on!
The Pony Express Museum in St. Joseph, MO is the starting point on the map, you will see a small WARHORSE Endurance icon at the start, the end of the trail is the Pony Express Statue in Sacramento, CA. Now, we realize there were more stops after Sacramento, though we choose this statue as the end point. *NOTE* This route is not making any claims of being historically perfect, and many of the stops are an approximate location. Life is truly a journey, ENJOY THE RIDE!
The Pony Express Route ran from St. Joseph, Missouri, to the Pony Express Memorial in California. With over 100 stops along the 1,900 mile route. Tentatively I have this race open funtil 2024, and results tracking open unit 2027 because if a rider rode 475 miles per year, that is how long it would take to make this route! If you ride less, you could still complete it in 7 years, at just 271 miles per year! If you are going to riding anyway, you might as well be a part of our virtual party! Maybe make this route a part of tracking your miles with your equine best friend or on your own two feet!
