Tough conditions for winter race, 16 finish The Drift

SUBLETTE COUNTY, WYO – Race results are in from The Drift held last weekend. The 28-mile winter marathon drew 18 participants—16 of whom managed to finish.

Contestants decided whether they wanted to ski, bike, or run/walk the distance. According to race organizers, snow was a bit soft and wind (a given) was ever-present. A skier, biker and runner rounded out the top three finishes.

Watch for the event again next year along with a companion 100-miler for the truly gnarly.
