This is a trail run and access is limited. Please make sure you bring water or other hydration with you.

The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, WYSEF encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Yellowstone Rendezvous Trail Run.

We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line. And, who knows, there may be a bear! (Just checking to see if you were reading this! Don't worry--we scare all the bears away with our morning breath)

Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of the other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
