About The Med Bow Rail Marathon & Half Marathon
The Med Bow Rail Marathon & Half Marathon in Albany, Wyoming is a popular race for runners of all ages and levels. The course is fast, flat, and scenic. It follows a path along the North Platte River with beautiful views of the mountains in the distance.
The race begins on 12 August 2023 at 8am at the start line near Laramie County Community College (LCCC). From there it winds through town before heading out into open country towards Medicine Bow National Forest. As you make your way around Lake Hattie, you will be surrounded by stunning scenery — rolling hills and lush countryside as far as the eye can see! You’ll eventually turn back towards town to finish up in front of LCCC.
For those running this half marathon, typical weather during that time of year tends to be hot and dry with temperatures ranging from mid-70s to low-90s during peak times. However, since most of this route is relatively shaded due to its location within Medicine Bow National Forest, temperatures remain more moderate than usual for this part of Wyoming in late summertime months like August.
Crowds tend to vary depending on when you run the race but are usually small enough so that everyone has plenty of room throughout their journey without feeling too crowded or cramped – making it an ideal event for first timers who want to experience what it’s like participating in a half marathon without feeling overwhelmed by larger crowds or intimidating competitors!
What makes this particular half marathon special is its family friendly atmosphere; not only are there several aid stations throughout where runners can get refreshments along their way but also volunteers who help cheer them on every step they take until they cross that finish line! So if you’re looking for a fun yet challenging event that won’t require much preparation or training – then look no further thanMed Bow Rail Marathon & Half Marathon!
