Packet Pickup & Schedule

There is NO early packet pickup for this race.

Race Day Schedule

6:00pm packet pickup
6:30 First wave starts

This is a wave start. Waves are comprised of 10 runners. We will have 10 rows of 10 cones, spaced 10’ apart. You can self-select which wave you would like to run in by standing next to a cone facing the start line. We suggest faster runners in the earlier waves, and request you do not self-select your wave until 6:20pm.

The announcer will release one wave every thirty seconds starting at 6:30pm. Your time will not start until you cross the mat. We encourage each wave of runners to self-distance as you approach the start mats. Once the announcer releases the wave you should start running.

Passing While Racing
The path is 8-25 feet wide providing plenty of social spacing. Participants are asked to run single file, on the right side of the path & spaced 10 feet apart. When passing a slower participant, participants should shout “passing on your left”. The participant will pass, leave six feet, and then merge right. 

Once you finish, we ask that you leave the race area.. Please do not wait at the finish line for someone to finish. 

It is a huge park so please maintain 10' of distance at all times.

Face Coverings

Based on our current permits, face coverings are now required at events. Here is how it will work:

Anyone in the “Arena” is required to wear a face covering. The Arena is defined as anywhere other than on the race course. This includes registration, packet pickup, parking areas, finish line, start line, restrooms, beer line, medal line, anywhere near other people. If you are within 10’ of anyone, at any time, a face covering is required.

Once you are on course, face coverings do not need to be worn, provided you are at least 10 feet from another person. At the start, you are spaced 10’ from others - we strongly encourage you to keep that distance. If you need to pass, call out “on your left” and move as far left as you can. Once you have passed a runner and you are at least 10’ in front of them, move back to the right.

We encourage runners to consider using running buffs while running near others. Buffs are available on our merchandise website.

When you cross the finish line, please move outside of the arena for your cool down. Once your cool down is complete, a face covering is again required.

If we want to keep running in person events together (and we do!), it is imperative that we exceed our permit requirements. Waukesha County is one of the few places in America that is open to in person events. It is up to our running community to prove that we can hold events safely.
