Buffalo Stampede raising money for Powder River Energy Foundation Runners from northeast Wyoming will tighten up the laces on Saturday, June 2, and challenge the open range course at the Durham Ranch. While they will be tasked to run or walk a 5-kilometer or 10-kilometer course, the runners will have the satisfaction of knowing they helped raise money for nonprofit organizations in the five-county area. The 11th annual Durham Ranch Buffalo Stampede 5K/10K Walk-Run is held to raise money for a different charity each year. The race draws more than 100 runners and walkers to the Campbell County buffalo ranch four miles north of Wright. Race organizers have selected the Powder River Energy Foundation as the recipient of this year’s proceeds.

Gillette at 682-7406; or the Wright Recreation Center in Wright at 464-0198; or email: buffalo@vcn.com. Costs after May 28 up to the day of the race are $25 for a single and $45 per family. Registrants receive a T-shirt and a breakfast the morning of the run. Established five years ago, the Powder River Energy Foundation has awarded more than $70,000 to scores of organizations in every county of PRECorp’s service territory. The Foundation’s main focus has been to support local organizations with limited resources for funding.

Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. June 2, with the walkers taking off at 8 a.m. and runners starting at 8:30 a.m. Buffalo Breakfast Burritos are served at 9:30 a.m. The cost to register is $20 per person or $40 per family if you signup prior to May 28.
