The perennially popular Wo-Zha-Wa Days Festival of Wisconsin Dells presents a pair of running races on Saturday, September 14. The 46th Annual Wo-Zha-Wa Run, including a half-marathon and a four-mile race, takes participants through the streets of this South Central Wisconsin community.
Race registration is available online until noon on Thursday, September 12, for the 2013 Wo-Zha-Wa Run, billed as “Wisconsin’s Oldest Long-Distance Race.” Participants receive finisher medallions, tech tee shirts, post-race refreshments, and free passes to popular Wisconsin Dells attractions.
Packet pickup begins at 6:30 a.m. on race day. Both races start promptly at 8 a.m. on September 14.
The four-mile and half-marathon courses are challenging blacktop loops, beginning and ending at Wisconsin Dells High School, 520 Race Street, in Wisconsin Dells. Wheelchairs and pets are not permitted in the races.
Prizes will be awarded to top overall winners and the fastest runners in various age categories in the chip-timed races. A $100 bounty is offered to any overall winner breaking the existing course record.
The Wo-Zha-Wa Run is part of the weekend-long Wo-Zha-Wa Days, which also includes a 75-unit parade, antique flea markets, an arts and crafts fair, live entertainment, Maxwell Street Days, a street carnival, and more family-friendly activities.
