Quest of The Pony Express (Fun Run)

Information from the Utah State Parks website:

Come experience the life of a pony express rider and reenact the ride in your running shoes from Camp Floyd to "St. Joseph, Missouri" and back.  Deliver the mail in your own haversack, take an oath for the pony express, visit the paymaster, and more! 

Total length of the fun run is 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles.  The race starts and ends at Camp Floyd / Stagecoach Inn State Park and Museum which was once a stop on the Pony Express.  Each participant receives a Quest for the Pony Express t-shirt, haversack to carry the mail, letter to a solider at Camp Floyd, small horse, and more.
