17th Annual Durham Ranch Charity Buffalo Stampede

17th Annual Durham Ranch Charity Buffalo Stampede 5K/10K Walk-Run, held on Saturday, June 2nd.

The popular annual charity event raised over $30,000. All proceeds went to the Powder River Energy Foundation, serving those in need of northeast Wyoming with a hand up.

The weather cooperated for big, sunny skies and a light, cool breeze for the walk/run.

There was a great turnout with around 180 in attendance.

Overall women’s and men’s race champions for both distances took home one of a kind, hand-made clay medallions with bison leather straps by Deb Penning of Baker City, OR., an assortment of Durham Ranch buffalo meat and, gift certificates for the Open Range Restaurant in Wright, as prizes.

After the famous buffalo burrito breakfast served up by Hank’s of Wright, the events were capped off by the traditional annual Buffalo Chip Toss where the women’s and men’s champions each took home a case of Durham Ranch buffalo brats. Arrow Langston, a school teacher from Wright who happened to be celebrating her birthday, won the toss for the women and, Scotty Hayden made the best toss for the men.

2016 Buffalo Stampede is Another Great Success!

The Buffalo Stampede is unique in a lot of ways.  For starters, the course…

Blake Johnson, overall winner and the top time in the age 30-39 group for the men’s 10K division said, “It’s harder than it looks. It’s undulating the whole way. It’s fun. There are deer and wildlife. I had two white-tail deer on the course in front of me. Then, right before I finished, there was an antelope that ran right through the gate in front of me. It’s fun coming back out here.”

Then there is family and food… 

Lindsay Albin has run the Buffalo Ranch Stampede a few times before and what keeps her coming back is running with family and for what happens after the run. Albin’s party of 12 — seven children and five adults — as well as the rest of the runners, were treated to free buffalo breakfast burritos at the finish line. “That’s what is fun, having food at the end,” Albin said. “It’s different than other fun runs. That’s what keeps making you do this one compared to other ones.”

But finally and most importantly, it is the local charities that win… 

One of the most unique is the impact the event has had on nearby communities, including Gillette and Wright. Each year, all the proceeds go to a local charity.  This year, money from the 10K and 5K runs will go to PRECorp Foundation, a nonprofit formed in 2007 by Powder River Energy to aid communities in the five northeast Wyoming counties, including Campbell.  This foundation is helping the community on a number of different levels and having a large impact in a variety of ways.
