Move over, “Tough Mudder” – here comes Wyoming’s “Cowboy Tough” race.  Governor Matt Mead announced yesterday that the new adventure race is coming to Wyoming with the inaugural “Cowboy Tough” Adventure Race Weekend taking place next July. This adventure race will combine mountain biking, trekking, canoeing, rock climbing and several other challenges. Governor Mead said events like this showcase Wyoming and attract visitors.  Mead says he believes Wyoming has the best resources in the world.  In the governor’s words, “These include our wide open spaces, striking vistas, mineral resources, and of course, the amazing people of Wyoming. We are always looking for ways to promote this state and all its great attributes.” The adventure race will take place over several days, starting near Cheyenne and ending in Casper.  Organizers say the goal of the race is to bring out the local community and to get kids active outdoors.
