Join us for some mountain therapy in the beautiful Ten Sleep Canyon of the Bighorn Mountains for our fourth annual Out of the Darkness & Into the Bighorns event.
Our 2021 Out of the Darkness & Into the Bighorns course will be exactly the same as the 2020 course and start near the Leigh Creek Campground in Ten Sleep Canyon on Forest Service Road 504 or "the old highway." The Ten Sleep Half Marathon will take your breathe away both for the vert in the first 6.5 miles and for the unique beauty of the rock formations and creek below and the diverse and unique ecosystem. The course starts pretty flat for the first .75 miles and then we will run up past the fish hatchery, over the bridge and up the old highway. It gets steep fast. The half marathon will go up past the switchbacks and pretty much to the top of the road to turn around and run back down. The 5k will go up about .8 miles past the bridge and back down again.
Last year we were able to donate $1000 to Cloud Peak Counseling Center for their free walk-in clinic and all proceeds after medals and awards will go towards that effort again this year, as the need has been so great that they have expanded it to two days a week (Mondays and Wednesdays from 1pm-4pm) beginning in March 2021. We feel that mental healthcare is more crucial than ever with the impacts that the virus has had on our economy and how we interact and take care of our friends and neighbors. If you would like to be a part of our efforts to fight suicide in rural communities, but aren't able to physically complete an event, please consider volunteering, donating, or reach out to our team about our other outreach efforts.
Out of the Darkness & Into the Bighorns is operated under a special use permit with the Bighorn National Forest and is an equal opportunity provider.
