The 2019 course will essentially be the same course as the 2018 course with racers having two Race Options:

One and Done -
A one lap, 31 mile loop (4,184 ft of climbing/descending all over 7500 ft in elevation) winding through the Pole Mountain trail system. Racers will be supported by the famous Laramie Range Epic Volunteers and sponsors who have made this race as fun and approachable as it is challenging and competitive.

The Laramie Range Epic -
The same course with a second lap. This is type two fun. It is going to hurt, but in a really good way. Same great support on both laps, and the beer at the end of the race has been on ice longer.

The Terrain -
Sitting in the hills just East of Laramie, Wyoming are the trails that make this area so special. Blair and Vedauwoo - this course explore pole mountains fast forested single track trails and roads

As always, the loop will include the familiar Happy Jack and Vedauwoo areas, winding you through beautiful rock formations on primative trails and fast forrested single track. From wildlife trails to single track to dirt roads, the course is equally well suited for geared bikes and single speeds. All at elevations over 7,500 feet, you'll race over high grass plains and down through serene aspen and pine forests.

NO highway crossings or pavement - all dirt, all day!

Aid stations every 10 miles with fresh food, water, performance nutrients, cowbells and the Laramie Enduro's legendary volunteers!

The same fantastic basecamp finish-line after-party with real food and real refreshments served by real people. Live music, awards ceremony, and more!
