Runners and trail hikers take to the Richard Bong State Recreation Area on Sunday, September 29, for a 3.8-mile jaunt.
The 14th Annual Wolf Lake Trail Run-Hike takes participants on a scenic footpath trip through grasslands, hills, and woodlands. Strollers are not recommended for the timed event, as the terrain tends to be a bit bumpy. Pets are not allowed.
Proceeds from the 14th Annual Wolf Lake Trail Run-Hike will help to fund the building of a Nature Explore Classroom for teaching children about interacting with nature.
The 14th Annual Wolf Lake Trail Run-Hike begins at 10 a.m., with race packet pickup beginning at 8:30 a.m. An on-course aid station will provide water for refilling participants’ own bottles.
Post-race festivities include door prizes, music, and refreshments. Top overall and age-group runners receive awards.
All 14th Annual Wolf Lake Trail Run-Hike runners and hikers who register in advance receive official long-sleeved event tee shirts. Race-day registrations may receive tees as well, if supply permits.
Race-day registration costs $30, plus $5 for parking.
The Richard Bong State Recreation Area is located at 26313 Burlington Road (Highway 142), in Kansasville, Wisconsin.
