Get your friends, the T-Bird Trek is an event anyone can have fun in! 

Proceeds benefit students!

Whether you walk or run, there is always crowd to cheer you through the race, delicious breakfast burritos to feed you after your race and recovery time by the fire pit. Get involved through one of the events listed below:

  • 5K on campus that you can run/walk at your own pace.
  • 10k that will get your heart pumping
  • Lookout Point Half-marathon will take you up Casper Mountain to enjoy the view while giving you the satisfaction of participating in one tough half marathon.
  • Downhill Half-marathon will begin on top of the Casper Mountain and you will run to the finish line at the Casper College campus.

Spend a fall morning with us at Casper College and support students while you do it! Profits from the T-Bird Trek support scholarships for Casper College students, institutional grants, and alumni programs.
