On race day, you may notice some people with different markings on their bib. If you look at the special indication area of the bib, you may see our Wander Project logo (a small teal circle in the top right corner), they are running as part of our Charity Bib Program.
Charity Bib athletes fundraise for their race registration. They have the option of fundraising for one of our official partners, or they can fundraise for a cause of their choice. It's a great way to add a little extra "oomph" to your running journey and it helps a wide variety of deserving causes.
To learn more about how to run with a Charity Bib or to support some of our existing athletes, visit this page!
Curious to learn more about the area?
26 tribes have ancestral connections to Yellowstone. Despite early claims by park superintendents that no Native American tribes lived in the area, we now know they resided here as far back as 10,000 years. In fact, you can find artifacts of these early inhabitants everywhere that people camp today.
Yellowstone’s location at the convergence of the Great Plains, Great Basin, and Plateau tribal regions means that many tribes have a traditional connection to the land and its resources.
For thousands of years, before Yellowstone became a national park, it was a place where ancestors to contemporary Blackfeet, Cayuse, Coeur d’Alene Nez, Shoshone, and Perce, among others, hunted, fished, gathered plants, quarried obsidian, and used the thermal waters for religious and medicinal purposes. The Crow specifically referred to the geysers as bide-mahpe, which means “sacred or powerful waters”.
