Come one, come all!
With more than 600 riders and horses participating in the 1,966 mile route, the National Pony Express Association will conduct a 10-day, 24-hour, non-stop “Annual Re-Ride of the Pony Express Trail” from Old Sacramento to Missouri on Wednesday, June 11 - 21, 2014.
The event commemorates the 1860-1861 Central Overland and California Pikes Peak Express Company which carried letters and telegrams for 19 months to prove the Central Route through Salt Lake passable year round. The Pony Express National Historic Trail runs from California through Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas to Missouri and is the longest event held annually on a historical trail in the nation. Riders will carry commemorative letters “Pony Express-style” in a packed and locked Mochila.
