Race schedule:

  • Packet Pickup: 6:00 am
  • 50k start: 8:00 am
  • 25k start: 8:30 am
  • 10k start: 9:00 am
  • Kids’ 1 mile fun run: 11:00 am
  • Cut-off time for all races: 5:00 pm

The courses are changed from last fall. We are using a lot of the same beautiful rolling single track trails, but with some modifications. There will be a 10k (ish) loop and a 25k loop. The 50k is the 25k loop twice. Click here for a course description and maps.

Aid Stations: There will be one aid station on the 10k loop and four on the 25k course. They will serve water, Gatorade, and a variety of sweet and salty snack foods.

Pacers: 50k runners are allowed to have pacers on the second lap. There will be a waiver at the registration table for pacers to sign. Pacers are welcome to aid station food. To avoid confusion with the timing we ask is that pacers step off the course before the finish line.


Camping: Yankee Springs State Recreation Area has two campgrounds. Rustic camping is available at the Deep Lake Campground near the start/finish. If you prefer a modern campground, check out the Gun Lake Campground. To reserve a site at either campground go to the DNR website.
