2015 Re-Ride - Missouri to California

     The National Pony Express Association will conduct its Annual Re-Ride of the Pony Express Trail from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, June 15 - 25, 2015. This Re-Ride will be a 10-day, 24-hour a day, non-stop event by over 600 riders and horses over the 1,966 mile route of the Pony Express National Historic Trail from Missouri through Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada to California. It is the longest event held annually on a historical trail in the nation. The event commemorated 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 owners hoped to win a federal mail contract on that route. Pony Express history is preserved in the federally designated Historic Trail, administered by the National Park Service, in museums, Pony Rider monuments, books, and the annual recreations by the NPEA.

     Riders will carry Commemorative Letters in a Mochila, Pony Express style. The envelopes will show they were carried by the Pony Express and the first class postage will have a special US Postal service cancellation. Only the number of letters purchased will be carried.

 

Anyone wishing to see the Pony Express riders should be aware that they may be anywhere from two hours ahead to two hours behind schedule!
