The Wildlander

2020 Wildlander

Based on current trends in the pandemic, the Wildlander Race Committee has made the decision to forego Wildlander 2020. Our primary responsibility is to keep our volunteers and participants safe. Please keep our sponsors, first responders, and wildland firefighters in mind as they adapt to these difficult times. Get out and enjoy our amazing open spaces on your own. The parking lot for Sandstone Ranch Open Space is under construction. Some of the trails should open to the public this fall!

Please support our first responders by staying safe. If you are able to donate to our participating volunteer agencies, that would be great!

The Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF) is a national organization that supports families of wildland firefighters killed or seriously injured the line of duty.

wild·land·er – An inhabitant or protector of the uncultivated portions of the earth, especially an emergency responder. Also, a running event held in Douglas County, Colorado to benefit Larkspur Fire and the Wildland Firefighters Foundation.
