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. You will deliver the mail in your own haversack, take an oath for the pony express, visit the paymaster and more!

Because the run is only 3.1 miles round trip, it’s a great educational experience for the entire family! I have signed up my entire family (me, my husband, and my two kids; 9 and 7 years old). I am not a big runner, so I will be walking the fun run with my kids.

This is a great way to teach your kids hands-on about the pony express and what they did. Camp Floyd was an actual stop on the pony express route, so it will bring the pony express to life.
